Metropolis is a professional bicycle shop that specializes in road, commuter, and fixed-gear bicycles but offers services for every cyclist, from tandem off-roaders to vodka-sipping mailmen on grocery trikes. A basic tune-up includes truing wheels as well as adjusting the brakes, shifters, headset, and bearings. Metropolis Cycle's fleet of United Bicycle Institute–certified mechanics will also perform a general cleaning and safety check to further facilitate your rediscovered quest for transportational autonomy (parts are not included).
Since 1944 we have been suppling Oregon and SW Washington Athletes with everything they need to be able to compete. We supply uniforms, field supplies, team gear, screen printing, embroidery, tackle twill lettering, and much more. Everything from bats and balls, to complete gym systems including wall padding.
The full bike tune-up begins with a thorough cable and drive-chain cleaning and lubing. Surgical adjustments are made to the tension of the brakes, ensuring riders can stop on a dime, pick it up, and buy a Chiclet without ever dismounting. The drive train is inspected and rebuffed to transform sticky gears into smooth shifters. Wobbly wheels undergo a truing process to increase pedal-pumping efficiency and ease momentum retention. A final overall inspection for safety and security tops off the tune-up, allowing bikes to roll back to their rack or cat condo.
Today’s side deal honors the snowboarding scene in A Few Good Men with snowboard or ski tuning up plus one hand-warmer packet and toasty toes packet at Daddies Board Shop for $15. Recapture your snow equipment's swagger so you can reign supreme on the slopes of victory.
Run by a team of Portland fanatics and passionate cyclists, Pedal Bike Tours shares their enthusiasm for the city through entertaining and accessible tours. The routes take advantage of Portland’s extensive network of bike lanes to meander through downtown, along the Willamette River, and through lush Forest Park. Each guide’s expertise comes in handy on food tours and microbrewery tours, as riders stop for bites or pints and soak up info about each of their stops. A few tours take riders beyond Rose City limits, and include van trips to explore Oregon’s coast or wine country. Pedal Bike Tours keeps tours as safe and comfortable as possible by providing helmets, locks, and lights, as well as rain jackets and jousting lances if necessary.
