How to shop at Redbeard

In the old days, you could wake up on a beautiful sunny Saturday, and pop into Redbeard Bikes…

These days, in the aftermath of COVID-19, we’re operating by appointment only.


If you’d like to buy a bike, please email us, and tell us about yourself and your riding goals.

We’ll schedule a new bike consult and sizing. Ilya, our bike fitter, will go over options and availability, and we’ll order a bike for you! Lead times vary from 2 weeks to 3 months.

The fee for a bike consult/sizing is $100. If you get a bike at Redbeard Bikes within 3 months of the appointment, we’ll apply that $100 towards your purchase.

Lead time for Specialized bikes varies… from 2 weeks to 3 months or more.

We work with a few stellar custom brands: Seven, Mosaic, Parlee and Gunnar. These companies are up and running, building custom frames to order. Mosaic and Parlee also offer a few stock frames for a faster turnaround.


Bromptons are reserved for local riders purchasing bikes for local use. We’ve temporarily paused shipping out-of-state due to high demand locally (and limited stock). Please email to schedule a demo appointment.


All service is by appointment. As of September 1, our service wait list is closed for the foreseeable future. We will update here when it re-opens.

We encourage all riders to learn to fix a flat and do basic maintenance. We sell tubes and the requisite tools, chain lube, etc.


If you’d like to buy a helmet or other accessories (or pick up a web order), please roll by the shop during these time windows. Note that there may be a short wait, and browsing is limited to 15 minutes.

Thank you for your understanding! Ride safe!
