~ Our Bike Buying Process ~
With the aim of ensuring every bicycle purchased from us fits like a glove and is perfect for your specific needs, for most of our bike sales the process begins with a conversation with you assessing:
Step 1 - Your specific needs whether it be a road bike, bikepacking bike, cargo bike, electric, folder, or something more unique.
Step 3 - If you decide to place your order for a new bike, we take a deposit and order it up for you.
Step 4 - Once your new bike has arrived and been assembled to your specifications, we'll set you up on the bike to the specifications from the fitting session and adjust as needed for comfort. Follow up sessions as required for stem, handlebar, and seat/post adjustments are included. Every new bicycle purchased also receives complementary Saddle Library access.
Step - 5 You ride away and take your every day adventures to the next level.
