Clever Cycles is the go-to place for family bicycling in Portland, period. There are other bike shops -- wonderful bike shops -- that specialize in cargo bikes, but if your cargo is kids then this is the place to go. I bought a used Bakfiets 5 years ago when they were out of stock of new ones and they have always treated me just a good as someone that bought the bike from them. Jeremy in the Service Dept is my personal hero. He has helped me on more occasions than I can count and I always leave feeling happier with my bike. I really can't praise them highly enough.

“Clever” cycles indeed but not in a good way. Beware clevercycles may ship you a returned/used merchandise for the price of a brand new one. I ordered brompton toolkit for a gift, a hard-to-find pricey brand name item. It came in an opened packaging and clearly was used. I will not be buying from clevercycles again.

Ordered a bike from them and it was delivered as promised and exactly as I had requested. A small part was missing and they promptly supplied the part with a photo of proper installation. Great service after the sale and a unique product line for the discerning urban cylist; stuff we don't see much of here in Phoenix. Great people to deal with; highest regards.

Good range of cargo and commuter bikes. Friendly service. Bit on the commercial side, I guess I like my bike shops a little more community oriented.

I went in with minor adjustments needed, but the staff refused to allow me to borrow their tools for a quick adjustment and they were demanding in their duty. For how many bike shops are in the area, I was appalled at how greedy for business they were. I will never return.
Response from the owner - a month ago
Hi Caleb, I apologize that we did not loan you a tool. It is our policy to let customers borrow a wrench, tire lever, etc. if needed to complete an adjustment or repair. The staff member you spoke to recently came from a shop where the policy was different. We have made sure they are aware of our policy. Thank you for letting us know of your experience. Dean

This is a friendly bike shop with lots of different choices geared toward practical city and family bikes. They have a bunch of cargo bikes, city bikes, folding bikes, and kids bikes. And they have tons of accessories like baskets and lights, and clothes like rain gear, and helmets.

After some less-than-stellar experiences at Portland bike shops where my kind of bike-riding isn't really catered to, I walked into Clever Cycles and went "Aaaaah!" This place feels just right. I ride every day to work and on errands. I don't race. I don't compete. I don't try to improve my time. I don't shower and change my clothes at the office, I just toodle along in street clothes at a non-sweaty pace. In short, riding a bike for me is purely transportation, and not in any way a sport. Clever Cycles understands this. They rented me a Workcycles Oma, spent at least half an hour making sure it was adjusted to fit me, and went to extraordinary lengths to insure that I had a great experience trying it out. They didn't bat an eye at my need for a more heavy-duty bike to suit my heavy-duty self. They told me frankly what the differences were between outwardly-similar bikes, and discussed with me why I might choose one over the other AFTER LISTENING TO ME about my intended use of the bike. The being-listened-to part of this story is the really extraordinary thing. So I'm going back with my tax refund to buy one of the fantastic-for-me Dutch bikes they sell. Yay Clever Cycles!
