Custom Bike - 6~8 weeks

For more than 40 years, R&E cycles has been designing, servicing, and selling bicycles in the U District. Staffers pride themselves on the idea that buying a bike from R&E - more of a bike church than a business - is like buying the bike shop itself: You'll get that much attention and expertise throughout the life or your ride. Models include lightweight touring cycles, packable folding bikes, and tandems (and quads, and quints) built for pedaling with a crew. The carbon (mis-print..should read 'lightweight steel') Rodriguez Rainier comes with Northwest-specific features like full fenders and a range of custom tire and rim choices.
