It hasn’t rained much in Portland in the past 5 months, and summer is on its way, so all rain pants and rain jackets are 50% off. Endura, Showers Pass, and any other brands. Even Mission Workshop and Swrve. This is a clearance sale, so no returns. There are even some Planet Bike gloves and such in our 50% off bin.

All of our Walnut Studiolo leather goods are 33% off!

 The new 2015 Raleigh Misceo 4.0 i8 is normally $1300, but we’re selling it for $1099. Just to be clear: This is a Gates Carbon Drive, Alfine-8 city/light-trail bike with Shimano hydraulic disc brakes…for $1099. You better ride this like you stole it, because you pretty much will have. Don’t worry, we’ll look the other way.

 Norco Indie Drop Alfine 11 with Di2 shifting: Our 2014’s are marked down from $2300 to $1899 (only sizes 51 and 57 are left). Bonus: We’re including the $100 Shimano battery charger for free, something that Norco didn’t include with the bikes.

Norco Indie Drop 2: marked down from $879 to $779. Size 51 only.

Spot Acme: All in-stock sizes of the 2014 Spot Acme are $300 off: $1899 instead of $2199.


Demo/Display Bikes:

We have a display Acme, 2014, size 55, that we equipped with a red SON28 Schmidt hub, the new red Gates belt, red Schmidt Edelux headlamp, Spanninga fender-mounted dynamo tail-light, Axiom fenders, touches of red such as the spoke nipples and seatpost collar, Ribmo tires, and red/black PDW SpeedMetal grips. Oh, and the handbuilt wheels are based on Velocity Dyad Halo rims. If custom-ordered, this bike would run about $3500. It’s been a display bike for about a year, and we’re letting it go for only $2750. If 55 is not your size, we can move all of these nice things over to any other frame size, in which case it would be $2800 for a 2014, $3500 for a 2015.

Three Surly Straggler display bikes are also marked down significantly.

–A 54 cm Straggler in sparkly purple (Glitter Dreams) with bamboo fenders, cork bar tape, Schwalbe tires, sprung Brooks saddle, and Brooks leather tool pouch. Regularly this would be over $2100, but we’ve had it on display for a year and have marked it down to $1750 (after the $150 Surly discount), which is $25 less than the regular price of the stock bike alone. It’s shown below, but the rack and North St. bags are not included. We can set up any other size Straggler, whether black or purple, with the same fenders, saddle, and bar tape for $1825. All of these numbers will go up by $150 after March 31, if these bikes are still here, because that’s when Surly’s promotion ends. Straggler dressed up






Straggler display bike number 2 is also a purple 54, but we built it up as a more upright very-low-maintenance city ride, with an Alfine 8-speed internally geared hub, Metropolis handlebars, and a single chainring for reduced weight and maintenance. This is a worry-free, fun to ride, all-weather urban bike. Just add your choice of fenders. $1295 after the Surly discount. Here’s an example of the bike when set up with a dynamo system, fenders, and a rack, which are extra:

Display/Demo Bike: Van Dessel WTF

Featuring belt drive, Alfine 11, Schwalbe Big Apple tires, Avid BB7 disc brakes, Brooks Cambium saddle, and a Shimano S-701 lightweight dynamo hub. Fully accepting of front and rear racks and fenders. Completely custom built from the frame up. This is an ultra-low-maintenance 29er urban bike that is ordinarily priced at about $2900. Perfect condition. On sale for $2400. Effectively a size 55. Notice we left the steerer tube uncut. We’ll cut it to the optimal length for you after you’ve had a chance to ride the bike and figure out what’s the most comfortable height for you.

 More deals, not demo:

Spot Rallye: Possibly the world’s sickest singlespeed, belt-drive cyclocross bike. Regularly $3000, the following sizes are now available for $2599: 56, 58, 60, and 64 only. This is for the pear green color, not the screaming yellow.

Spot Rallye frameset: $999, normally $1199. Can be built as singlespeed chain, singlespeed belt, geared chain, or even with an internally geared hub and either belt or chain. Green, not yellow.

Some sizes are out of stock at Spot until early May (at which time new colors appear), but hit us up. The Rallye is our cyclocross team’s official bike. Just FYI.

Spot Wazee: regularly $2349, now $2149 for all sizes. Want your own color? For $250 we can have it powdercoated any color you like, all disassembly/reassembly labor included. Are we crazy? No, that’s just how it pencils out.

Wazee is what we call the ultimate urban bike–belt drive, Alfine 11, hydro disc brakes, steel frame and fork, Schwalbe tires, and an exhilerating full-body kind of ride experience that will make you glad you’re not Dutch, not dead, or both not Dutch and not dead. Oh, what a feeling!

Spot Honey Badger

The Honey Badger looks sweet but actually is insatiable. It does not give a shit what you aim it at. Honey Badger will chew up your singletrack, spit it out behind you, and take selfies on the scattered remains of it. Is that a bit much? No, actually it’s not. After days of product testing at Sandy Ridge and elsewhere in these parts, we can verify that the cannulated seat tube helps make this hardtail 29er feel almost like a dual-suspension on jagged descents, but without the weight when you are climbing. On sale for $1799 (singlespeed/belt or geared/chain). Normally $2599 or $2699, respectively. We can ship you one across the continental US. Don’t procrastinate. Most sizes are sold out. XL is not sold out. Framesets are available in some sizes and we can build you a complete Honey Badger from there, but it will cost more on account of we don’t work at factory in Asia yet.

Salsa Fargo: Purchase any Fargo 2 or Fargo 3 or Suspension Fargo at the regular price and get $150 in credit for accessories or parts. This will go a long way toward outfitting your Fargo with Revelate frame packs so that you don’t even need no stinkin racks. This offer applies to both in-stock Fargos and any Fargo we order for you. It even applies to the suspension Fargo, which is a bike you should seriously consider adding to your stable. When negotiating with your partner about this, use the verb “curate” so that you don’t sound so slutty.
