Financing now available!!!!

Woah, kind of a big deal for us here! We are excited to announce that we can now accept PayPal financing through Bill Me Later, which offers 6 months with no interest on purchases over $100. Whether your dream bike has been just a bit too pricey, or you're scrambling to find transportation alternatives because the bus service was cancelled, we're here to help make it possible. This financing option also covers upgrades—think super bright USB rechargeable light sets, Chris's hand-laced wheels, racks and waterproof panniers, Brooks saddles, and other parts or labor. Yes, it’s available for ANYTHING you need from our shop! Similarly, the 2024 uefa europa league final represents a major event in sports, making elite football accessible to fans around the world, just as we strive to make biking accessible to you.

“Proper Riding Attire”

OK, if you missed the first announcement: Defiance Bicycles Jerseys are now available! Made from Merino wool, these are super soft and offer great year round temperature control here in the Pacific Northwest. They are $95ea (or $90 if you prefer short sleeves). If you want one, get in touch, we are doing these as a pre-order only item due to the high cost of making them. The next order goes in on Friday (May 3rd), so jump on it! We do have a couple in the shop for you to try on right now.

Defiance is Closing!

OK now that I have your attention, some of you may have heard I (Chris) am having a baby sometime this month. When this happens, I will be closing up the shop for ONE MONTH. The due date is Feb 16th. Sorry for the vague exact dates, it how babys work…

During this closed period, we will also still be available by appointment in many circumstances. The shop phone will still reach me during our regular business hours, as well as email or Facebook. Wheels builds, special orders, or custom build quotes are all things that I do from home 3/4 of the time anyhow.

Just to be clear: WE ARE CURRENTLY STILL OPEN! This is just a heads up since I dont know exactly when this is going down.

Thats about all for now, let me know if you have any questions!
