BikePortland.org there has been an ongoing discussion about women + bikes + preconceived notions about women in cycling - all of which we won't get into here. If you want to delve deeper into the conversation, click on the link and dig in.
The point of this post is to simply show what will not happen to you if you are a women who has walked into BikeBike looking for some help or advise.
Cetainly, we can sell you a new bike if you so desire - and we can find you a pink cruiser if you like too!
However, what we aim to do is to provide women (well, everyone really) with whatever they need to keep cycling everyday. If, as the cartoon illustrates, you want to upgrade your current bike with more comfortable/utilitarian parts and accessories - we can help.
We like to call such upgrades CityBike Conversions and we will be stocking much of what the cartoon describes - and more - to make converting your cherished bicycle easy and affordable. Also, we have set aside some space in the store to provide a "fitting area" so you can experience what your bike will feel like with the upgrades you have chosen, before they are installed. For more information on this service or to book an appointment, give us a call or drop us an email.
We know that many people love their beat up, or old, hand-me-down bikes (or and expensive bike that isn't fitting well for city riding) and simply want to make them more useful and we also appreciate that not everyone has the means to buy a new bike whenever the fancy strikes them. Keep your current bike going with a few key upgrades and a small investment in parts and accessories.
Why buy a whole new bike if you don't have too? Keep that old bike out of the landfill - by simply upgrading a few things and - BLAM-O! - your new converted city bike!
