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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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 email@example.com 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!
