What does it all mean? It means you want a Surly? You get a Surly for $150 off. Just has to be in stock, either here or there. We have an LHT and a Disc Trucker on the floor plus a Pugsley that is already on sale and yep, you can apply this on top. It just takes us 1 day to get a bike in the shop if we have to order it so what are you waiting for?! The price is right, the time is now through April 1st, and the proud new owner is you!

I admit the first time I saw an Xtracycle FreeRadical I laughed at it, even the very idea of it. “Who wants to carry a cello on their bike” I think I said? I was firmly in the go fast by bike camp at that point, anything more than a messenger bag was too much. Well, one day I saw a friend riding to work with a radio playing NPR in his WALD basket, and then I went bike touring on an old Motobecane and then, eventually, I got a bike shop. And an Xtracycle! I found out that they really are amazing, and this blog is full of posts touting their many uses so I won’t waste time rehashing except to once again pay that ultimate compliment – Of my bikes the Xtracycle is the only one that would have to be replaced, and immediately, if it went missing.
My first Xtracycle was the FreeRadical add on kit. Comes with everything you need to turn the bike you already have into a legit cargo bike. Xtracycle is now updating the design of the venerable old FreeRad and have stopped production of the old design. Which is what I wanted to tell you! Pictured is the last FreeRad we will ever have in stock. So if you have been on the fence about trying this whole cargo bike lifestyle out with an add on kit you better act soon, because that whole fence is about to get torn down.

Hello December! As is our custom we will be closing on the afternoon of the 24th and will not re-open until Next Year! (2015 if you’re keeping count) But we have 21 days open yet this year so let’s make a deal with a weird Monty Hall twist.
Starting today all in stock new bikes and total receipts over $100 you can take 21% off the total. Tomorrow it drops to 20% (20 days to go) and then 19% the day after that, 18%, etc, and this is ALL new bikes even if they are already on sale.
Full Carbon Masi road bike for $1100?!?! Yup, today – tomorrow it is $1116
Yep, you can grab a bike for up to 36% off depending on it’s current sale price! Check our SALES & SPECIALS page to see what is on sale already and remember this sale also covers ALL IN STOCK REGULARLY PRICED NEW BIKES!
Detroit A-Type? 21% off today!
Bianchi Lupo? 20% off tomorrow!
Surly Disc Trucker? 19% off Wednesday!
Bianchi Cortina? 18% off Thursday!
Bacchetta Giro 20? 17% off Friday!
Don’t forget this applies not only to bikes but to ALL receipts totaling $100 or more for accessories, apparel, and parts over. So Arkel bags over $100 (already 20% off) take another 21% today and counting down until the end of our year!
Sorry does not apply to labor or used bikes, we got a fish to feed ya know!

One of our favorite sayings here in the shop is Ever Forward! Also, the Future Does Not Exist, which is enough to give you a headache if you think on it too long. With that in mind here is a saddle Brooks introduced earlier this year that the 30¢ Squad has been doing extensive townie testing upon this year. We give it a big thumbs up for your butt! Errr, well it’s a nice saddle that feels broken in right out of the box, and has some serious style futuristic retro style.
Like this 2015 MASI Gran Criterium. Gum wall tires and 11 speed?! Say okay, don’t be a square now. Like us. We switched to Square for our small business (okay – micro business) point of sale cash registering and credit card acceptance needs. No more paper receipts! We can take your Discover card or AmEx even!
Plus we got to clear all this junk off our counter.
And we got to get an iPad which is good for Square. And all kinds of other important bike shop stuff.

Got our first 2 generator wheel orders as the season of the Darkness approaches.
Don’t take it from us, listen to them:
When you’re cycling through the city at night
And you’re dodging these apartment lines
I’ve got my fingers greasy
And you didn’t care
I was fixing your shame
This is our shame salvaging package deal – no polluting or burnt up batteries for you – handbuilt wheel with a Shimano disc compatible generator hub laced with DT spokes to a Sun rim because <duh> with a Planet Bike blaze generator light to bright that night for $230.
First two wheels built, time change in about 2 weeks and just as the Darkness say -
Nothing’s gonna stop us!
Cause it doesn’t matter where we are
Oh when you’re the stunt peg
And I’m in the chair
I was pulling a wheely
You were pulling my hair
They’ll never catch us
Cause we’re catching air

Get a clue, because it’s neither game nor mystery – a killer bike is fun for the whole family!
And the PDW Take Out Basket will ably carry a six pack and a u lock for when, you know, you have to lock your bike up. Or need to take someone out… on a date.

30¢B: So let’s get this straight, you’re Aufderheide? What’s that all about?
BWA: Let Me Google That For You? Like it says on the website, lights, fenders, racks, action.
30¢B: Okay, smartass, we can all see that you are made in the USA by a couple of cool guys out in Portland, OR, and you have not only the best headtube badge in the business but also a custom matching stem and frame pump, but what’s with them shifters?
BWA: They are super cool right? Also from Portland by the way, Gevanalle is the name and durable comfortable precise braking and shifting is the game.
30¢B: Anything else from Portland to show off? And are you the shiniest bike ever?
BWA: Funny you should ask, I count on Fenderbot from PDW to light things up behind me. Small, effective and always there when needed, kind of like me. Now as to your shiny question – yes I am the shiniest bike ever. Lots of Velo Orange components and Nitto Racks, hope they don’t hurt your eyes?
30¢B: Okay you brought it up and mentioned small, what size are you anyways?
BWA: You pig! This interview is over!!
<Aufderheide knocks over Feedback Sports RAKK (which is not easy to do) and storms out the door, bound for anywhere and who knows where>
