Introducing the Torker T-510, now available at Defiance for only $450. Upright hybrid bike w/ 21 speeds, but no silly suspension fork! Also available in a low step-through model. Come test ride one today!
Woah, kind of a big deal, we can now accept PayPal financing through Bill Me Later. They offer 6 months with no interest on payments over $100. Bike of your dreams been a little out of reach? Bus service cancelled and trying to figure things out on zero budget? Stop into the shop and we will see what we can do to make it happen for you. This also works for stuff like upgrades (Super bright USB rechargeable light set? Chris’s hand laced wheels? Rack and waterproof panniers? Brooks saddle? Other parts/labor? YES, for ANYTHING!).
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.

Hooray! Today (Saturday April 27th) is the 5th annual Tacoma Bike Swap, from 10am-2pm at the UPS Field house (11th/Union). SO THAT MEANS NOBODY WILL BE AT THE SHOP.

Friday April 19th the Mob will take to the streets again! Meet up at the Broken Spoke on MLK @7pm, and as always you will need to bring: Bike, Helmet, Lights, Lock, Cash, ID (21+) and a Good Attitude!
Defiance Bicycles will re-open April 2nd 2013. The hours are still the same (11-7 Tues-Fri, 12-7 Sat, Closed Sun/Mon). Cant wait to see you all, this is going to be our best summer yet!
Defiance is closed until April, I will be spending the next few weeks at home with my new baby Zita! Email if you need me (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thanks for being awesome, Tacoma. I promise not to just be a stay at home dad for too long…
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!
