We believe bikes are instruments of freedom and adventure. They offer the opportunity to liberate us from our workaday drudgery and literally transport us to a higher plane of existence. Whether it’s your daily commute, your lifelong dream vacation, or somewhere in between, a bike can take you there swiftly, silently and pleasantly. And that’s where we come in. If you already have a bike, we are here to keep it in top working order, lest your adventure become neither swift nor pleasant. Need a bike, or have one that’s not appropriate to your needs? Let us help you find one. We are happy to offer advice, whether it’s where to find the best singletrack, proper bikepacking setup, or help with a project, stop on by.

Brad came to Portland after Utah wasn’t big enough to hold him. He abandoned a low paid and stressful career in the restaurant world in favor of a low paid and less stressful career in the bike industry and hasn’t looked back. We started paying him in 2009. A sojourn on the Oregon Outback rekindled his love of camping and all things outdoors. In his spare time he likes to wrangle cats and get dirty, whether on the trail or in his back yard. He particularly likes mountain biking with his friends.
