We are looking forward to a great summer, Cartlandia has filled up with a whole host of new and old carts, so come on down and get your bike tuned up while you chow down.

A Great Trial Run

September 23, 2011 in Uncategorized

To all who have visited us at The Bike Rack, thank you. We entered into the unknown with a bicycle repair cart in a food cart pod, and we were met with enough success to keep moving into phase two. To accommodate this next phase we will need to focus over the fall and winter on implementation. Business has already slowed for the season to a point where we feel this is the time to switch that focus. In the long run we intend to be an all season shop, and the things we focus on this year should move us in that direction. We will fully open again next spring, no later than 4-1-12, with a full complement of rentals, a large selection of used bikes for sale with a warranty, we will offer consignment sales for our customers, and we will soon begin discussions with the appropriate entities within the City of Portland to get a mobile repair service approved for the spectacular trail system we all enjoy. In the mean time please call with any needs, or to make an appointment for any work you would like done.

More cool press and a great time

Saturday, August 27th was the Grand Opening of Cartlandia. The weather was right as was the mood, and all involved had a great attitude. OK enough rhyming, but it truly was fun. With a car wash to start the day, raffles throughout, and a band to wind things up what could be better? Well, since I asked I will tell you. An article that hit a national website, and it happens to have a picture of one of our signs in it. Here is a link. It is simple and straightforward, as well as a great culmination to a day I thought had ended at midnight.

The Bike Rack

August 9, 2011 in Home Slide

Portland Bike RepairCome visit at our ultra convenient location on the Springwater Corridor just west of 82nd Avenue in Cartlandia. We are a bike shop, in a trailer, in a food cart pod, but we have no intention of moving. So, think of us as you start your next ride, and stop in for maintenance, accessories, nutritional supplements, the always free water, free air, free chain lube, or free banter. We love to chat.

However our main intention is to keep you riding. We will do our best to take care of whatever your needs are while you wait. Or, you can head over to one of the adjacent Cartlandia food carts and get a bite while we fix up your ride. There are more food carts showing up every week.

Cartlandia also has a large parking lot from which you can start and end rides. Along with the food carts there are a myriad of events going on as well. Check into our events page often and we will try to keep you updated.
