A Better Cycle

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Hi everyone!


Long time no post! We have been busy repairing bicycles all spring.

We made it into the PDX approved issue of The Portland Mercury. Look for our tiny ad in there on July 24th. A humongous thanks to everyone who voted for us! we are having a great summer and look forward to fixing your bicycles!

Thanks again,

P.S. We have a shop puppy. He's super cute. Come see him.

The shop will be CLOSED January 28th, 29th, 30th and maybe the 31st so we can finish up our remodeling project.  We will be open the 1st of Febuary and the shop will have had a pretty major makeover in some areas.  All the bikes for sale will be upstairs now and our repair area will be downstairs.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but are looking forward to a smoother operating shop from here on out!  As we move toward spring we are planning on creating a larger area for nicer used parts and moving into consignments of both bicycle and higher end components.  We are also aiming to become an even more full service shop and should be able to start offering an even great array of repair options, including the servicing of all types of disc brakes and rebuilding of shocks etc.  Swing by after the 1st of February and check out the new and improved A Better Cycle!

We will be closed Thursday, November 22, for Thanksgiving and the following Friday for Buy Nothing Day.

We need to get rid of all these bikes we haven't sold  yet, so we decided to knock 10% OFF the price of all the bicycles we have.  That means our bikes are anywhere from $45 to $130 cheaper!  Not only that, but you still get 10% off any accessories (racks, fenders, locks, helmets, gloves, etc.); a free tune-up; and a T-Shirt when you buy a bike from us.
We also have a ton of decent frames waiting for custom builds.
These include:
Kona Smoke
Kona Jake the Snake
Razesa - Columbus tubes, Spanish made. These guys built high end frames for Zeus back in the day.
Schroeder Mixte - Handmade in Copenhagen
and a bunch of other cool stuff.
Slow season is on its way for us and I'm sick of looking at all of these beautiful bikes and frames just gathering dust!

We will be closed Monday, September 3, in observation of the worker's holiday.  See you Tuesday!

Grand Re-opening!


         We have made some pretty interesting changes to our little love child we call A Better Cycle. We want the opportunity to re-introduce ourselves. Please come by if you can.

And a special thanks to New Belgium for donating a Keg!
