Lakeside Bicycles has been a family owned and operated business since 1997. All of our owners ride, our senior partner since 1970.
We believe that bicycles offer a unique combination of environmental friendliness, technological sophistication, simple beauty and user benefits. Bicycles, simply, make everyone who use them healthier and happier while leaving the world untouched or better. We opened Lakeside Bicycles in order to get people on bicycles and to help people involved in bicycling to get as much out of the sport as they can.
We do this by offering expert consultation, outstanding customer service, a knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff, the finest selection of carefully considered bicycles, parts, clothing and accessories found anywhere and by not standing still. We work constantly to improve every aspect of our business. We listen to our customers. We encourage cross training and conversation among our staff and management. We take advantage of every opportunity the industry offers to better ourselves including manufacturer's seminars, on-line and written training and technical documents, trips to trade shows in Europe and the United States, and by keeping our passion intact and our eyes focused on our successes and our failures and by listening.
We are active members of the Lake Oswego and Portland community. The performance of our junior development and women's cycling team (sponsored jointly with Fred Meyer) is judged entirely on participation in public outreach. Team members give away hundreds of helmets and perform hundreds of bicycle safety checks every year. We are active supporters of the Lake Oswego Parks and Recreation department and of local schools and foundations to whom we have made dozen's of in-kind donations of bicycles, accessories and service. One more thing, we have always provided health insurance to our staff at no cost.
We mention all of this in order to encourage you to come by and meet us (and the cat). To share our passion for bicycles and bicycling. Let us introduce you to our unique collection of fine bicycles from Bianchi, Cannondale, Colnago, Dahon, Look, Lynskey, Pinarello, Pegoretti and Specialized (and Magnus, the cat). Check out clothing from Assos, Pearl Izumi, Giordana and Malojah (sometimes including fur, provided at no extra cost by the cat). Share our obsession with fine wheels and components from Campagnolo, Mavic, Zipp and ENVE, Shimano, TRP, Light & Motion, Specialized, Garmin, Cateye and many more. Come chat with us about wheels, fitting, routes parts or anything else related or unrelated to cycling. Allow us to consult with you on the in's and out's of your current bike and let us help you find your next one. Watch a video or just take a few moments and pet the cat.
Summer is in full swing, and 2016 models are appearing en mass. Now is the time to celebrate with a visit to our fine collection of bicycles including the newest in Specialized S-Works, Bianchi, Pegoretti and the Colnago V1-r. Take the plunge, stop by and visit our thoughtfully chosen, brilliant selection of spectacular bicycles and accessories (some of them nearly unheard of outside our humble halls) or to take advantage of our staff of highly skilled and supremely motivated cycling ninjas. Their entire lives have been devoted to honing their cycling skills and knowledge to a fine edge of Zen perfection. They are waiting to help you. Don't disapoint them.
