Dispatches from The Daily Rider

June 2021 Update

COVID-19 Procedures:

The shop has fully reopened to customers.We have removed mask requirements for our fully vaccinated staff and customers.

Schedule a repair by email or phone call:

Our repair calendar has us booking tune ups and larger repairs out about two weeks. This may trend down into July, which is a pretty quick turnaround for this time of year.

Please call or email for an appointment. If we’re out of the shop or not answering, the phone number is text enabled. We check voicemail when we can, but please know we’re more responsive by text.

During the day we can accept a limited number of small repairs for minor issues such as flat tires and minor adjustment. We simply don’t have adequate staffing for quick repairs while you wait.

Which brings us to…

Now Hiring:

Want to join the team that made us the Washington City Paper’s “Best Place to Get Your Bike Fixed” for 2020? We’re looking for exceptional customer service professionals and skilled mechanics that will keep our customers riding. If you have experience in retail and want to share your love of city cycling, drop us a line at with a resume and cover letter. Already a bike mechanic? We know you’re in demand at the moment, so feel free to see if our shop environment might be a welcome change of pace.

June 2021 Bike Stock:

Reports from all of our distributors indicate shortages, delays, and high demand complicating an already stressed supply chain. We have orders that were placed in mid-2020 that will be partially filled but cannot guarantee what or when they will arrive. Some bikes that have arrived are the second wave of the new Tern GSD and models from Fuji (out of stock 6/20) and Breezer.


Downtown EX in Bronze

A full compliment of  Breezer Downtown EX models are in stock now. This upright town bike is well suited for utility or casual riding and comes equipped with rack and fenders.





Downtown EX Step Through in Graphite


In addition, the Breezer Downtown EX Step Thru arrived in graphite and red. These are available in all sizes.   Just like the Downtown EX, it is fully equipped and ready for town biking.




Downtown EX in Rhubarb Red







Tern GSD Gen 2 in matte black

Tern GSD Gen. 2


The all new Tern GSD has returned to stock (5/13) and is now available to test ride. We have several of the base model version in flat black, and one LX model in School Bus Yellow.  This supremely capable electric cargo bike has been improved with a suspension fork and all new Bosch Cargo Line motor.




If you’re looking for an electric Yuba Supermarché,we have one remaining in stock that is nicely equipped for passenger carrying duties.


The industry-wide shortage of parts extends beyond our borders. Our bike vendors have told us they’re having trouble getting parts for bikes on the production line, leading to further delays. For us as a local shop, this means we will also experience limited inventory throughout 2021. This will cause repair delays, and restrict our ability to fix certain issues. Common parts like cassettes and derailleurs will be in short supply for the next 18 months until manufacturers can replenish the supply.
