Another happy custom-errrrrr!

  Nadine loves her mean green machine!
She had her bike custom built right down to the to the color:
  "I woke up with an idea one day, while being surrounded by mainstream bike shops, I thought of that cool looking shop I had seen in the past. I found Riders a year ago but never took the time to stop in for a visit. This time I went in, met valentine and fell in love!!! Val sat me down and took the time to talk to me but more importantly listened to me and what i wanted in this dream bike of mine. I returned to the store at the time that he estimated it would be built by and when I walked in and saw him helping out a customer i decided to look around the store. There in the lineup of bikes i saw the bike of my dreams, it even had green brake wires. When Val finished with the other customer he told me that the bike was mine! I have never loved a bike more in my life... oh and they have a coffee bar too! Amazing.  Thank you riders! " - Nadine

Hey Dawg! Come on in and check out some boards.

  We currently have a wide selection of skateboards, longboards, and all the skate parts and protective gear to get you riding fast and safe. We are also curently featuring a cork top deck:

   This Cork ply deck has a real cork sheet laminated to the top of the deck eliminating the need for grip tape. The cork is harvested from live trees in a sustainable manner and adhered with water based glues. The benefit of this collectors deck is that they are both fun to skate and easy on your shoes.

Custom bikes built for you!

Check out photos of our latest custom build in our facebook photo album section. Sergio of Handwurks design group was tailor fit to a bike this late June.

"Val and the guys at Riders are good people. They know a ton about bikes and built me a tough Single Speed road bike, with burly components, that's fast and a lot of fun to ride. Riders is a real-deal Local Bike Shop – a friendly neighborhood spot with a warm atmosphere, good tunes, and killer espressos. Thanks for a great bike guys! "
- Sergio

  Thank you Sergio, we have had a great time working with you to pefectly suit your riding needs and we always love to have the opportunity to build up a bike one on one with a customer. We look forward to having you by for an espresso soon since it's customers like you that help keep our everyday shop vibe alive.
