    Redbeard Bikes carries the full size range of Liv women's carbon and aluminum road bikes, as well as city and casual bikes. Ladies -- that's XXS to L. You know how rare this is. Come test ride one of these dream machines today!

    Liv is the only brand that makes a full range of bicycles and gear for women. Designed by women, for women.

    That said, no bike ever fit anyone straight out of the box. At Redbeard, fit is our first priority. We will set you up on the bike so that you are comfortable, yet efficient and powerful. Your bike fit changes over time, so we encourage you to visit us for adjustments! 

    Special thanks to photographer Sam Polcer of New York Bike Style fame, for this shot.

  • Why Clipless? An Interactive Workshop

    Have you ever wondered about clipless pedals? Why would someone want to attach themselves to the bike by their feet?

    Join us on Tuesday, May 26, at 8 PM, at Redbeard Bikes for a fun, interactive workshop on this very topic!

    We'll cover:
    + What are clipless pedals?
    + What are cleats?
    + Different kinds of pedals and shoes
    + Advantages of riding clipless
    + Shoes/pedals and bike fit

    We'll address any questions and reservations you may have about riding clipless, and you'll get the chance to practice clipping in and out on a trainer.

    Anyone who buys pedals and shoes at Redbeard Bikes, gets to practice on the trainer before they roll out! However, we know the shop can be a hectic place, especially on a spring or summer weekend. So, if you've been considering clipless pedals, we encourage you to bring your bicycle to the workshop. We can set you up with pedals and shoes that night.

    Space is limited; please RSVP to kasia@redbeardbikes.com.

  • Flat Fix Workshop, 4/20

    Knowledge is power! Come to our flat fix workshop on Monday, April 20th at 8 PM. We'll teach you how to prevent and fix flats.

    This session is geared towards road bikes and hybrid/city bikes. This is a hands-on workshop. You are welcome to bring your own tools and bike, or to use one of ours.

    Brompton riders -- fear not! We'll have another Brompton flat fix clinic next month.

    Space is limited; please RSVP to redbeard@redbeardbikes.com.

    This event is also on BikeNYC. Check the BikeNYC calendar -- hosted by Transportation Alternatives -- for rides and other bicycle-related events throughout the city.

    (Note that this is a rescheduled workshop, originally slated for tonight.)

  • For whom does the Spurcycle Bell toll?

    The Spurcycle bell is AMAZING. It is tiny, elegant, loud -- and it will fit any handlebar on any bike.

    Ilya and I mounted ours on our Lynskey road bikes. The bell is so much more civil than shouting.

    The bells are finally available -- for the first time since the Spurcycle Kickstarter concluded!

    You can get yours at Redbeard Bikes. Our first batch arrives next week - reserve yours today by emailing redbeard@redbeardbikes.com.
