What makes us different?
Only Utility Bikes: We like to say, “We’re a niche within a niche.” As soon as you walk in the door, you’ll know we’re different. We focus exclusively on cargo bikes and cargo bike accessories so we don’t look or operate like a typical bike shop.
Personal attention: Cargo and utility bike customers are our top priority so we’re able to give you our full attention and answer all of your questions. That means you are able to make an informed decision when considering which bike best meets your needs.
We Like to Customize: While we have pre-built bikes we take pride in having the ability, knowledge, and dedication, to help you customize your bike. Whether your new bike needs a different stem or drive train upgrade, we’re happy to consult and customize your bike to make it just the way you like it.
Top quality products: A cargo bike is a once-in-a-lifetime investment so buying a quality product pays off over the long term. We’ve stocked our store with only the best bikes and accessories available. You can be assured that the bike you buy at Splendid Cycles is well-engineered and built to last.
What’s With those Crazy Hours and Store Closures?
We strive to deliver top-notch service to our customers. You, our customers, are why we do what we do. Helping you, seeing cargo bikes transform your lives, and…oh, my, how you give back by supporting us; it all keeps us going. But, as wonderful as our job here is, we are committed to striking the work-home balance that sustains our ability to bring our A-game to Splendid Cycles.
In order to do that, we have to carve time out for ourselves. Since there’s just the 2.5 of us, and the two full-time folks are married (to each other), that means we have to close from time to time to follow some of our other dreams. We know that can be inconvenient for our customers, especially those traveling from out-of-town to visit us. We regret that and apologize that we can’t be here 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. Until we’re bigger and have the staff to take care of customers while we’ll away, we’ll continue to have periodic closures-sometimes due to work, other times for play. Until then, be sure to check our website (the bottom, center of the page) before you plan your trip to our shop. We hope you understand.
Splendid Cycles not only sells Larry vs Harry Bullitt cargo bikes from our cozy store in Portland, Oregon, but we’re also the West Coast Bullitt Distributor. Through our affiliate Bullitt Dealers you’ll find the same great bikes and Bullitt accessories all at a convenient neighborhood store.
