Last year, Dirck Harris, a customer and good friend of ours passed away. He was an avid cyclist, a member and president of the W&OD Trail Patrol. A frequent visitor at the shop, we always enjoyed his sense of humor and genuine kindness. Dirck will be sorely missed by all of us here at the shop. His passing was due to mesothelioma, the result of serving in boiler rooms in the Navy many years ago.
At the request of his family, we are holding a silent auction of Dirck's Catrike. Please submit your bid in writing at the shop, using the forms provided, or email to by midnight, Sunday, June 3rd. The funds will be donated to the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation in honor of Dirck.
MINIMUM BID IS $1350!

Ice introduced the 'helping handles' accessory for the Adventure RS back in 2012 and now they have released a version of them for the Sprint.
They provide leverage for entering and exiting the reclined seat; which is fantastic for the low seat of the Sprint trike.
The Helping Handles clamp firmly onto to the cross-axle of Sprint trike without interfering with the steering or ride; once fitted they do not need to be removed.

On the Brompton website is a series of good videos that show various aspects of caring for your Brompton folding bike.
One of the more difficult and non-intuitive operations is removing the rear wheel, usually to replace a punctured tube.
The video on the Brompton site steps through the process showing which tools are necessary.
There are also videos on folding and unfolding the bike, removing the front wheel, adjusting the 2-speed dérailleur and 3-speed internal hub, and several others.
If you own a Brompton or are thinking about purchasing one, it's worth checking out the videos.
Are you an avid lover of all things Brompton? Do you ever wonder how this marvelous little machine came to be? Wonder about the people behind it?
Well, here's your chance to learn all about one of the finest folding bikes made to date, The Brompton Bicycle, by David Henshaw, is now in its second edition, and we have it here at bikes@vienna! Priced at $24, the book is a fascinating look into the story of the Brompton, as well as a good overview of folding bikes through the years.
After a long hiatus, the Kidz Tandem is back in production, and we anticipate having one here in the store around March. Good news for a long awaited arrival!
Our most popular family tandem has been the KidzTandem by Brown Cycles. The child is seated in the forward position and the adult controls the bike from the rear. Conversations are much easier making for a more fun ride. The adult can easily watch the child seated in front. Options for the front seat include a regular saddle for older kids and a child seat for toddlers.

We sell and repair single bikes, tandems, recumbents, and trailers. We want people to use a bike to have fun, to exercise for good health, to save money, and to protect the environment. Our bike shop offers high-quality cycling products and service, but what we really promote are values.

The store is, in fact, about midway between Church Street and Maple Avenue (Route 123), and is accessible from a broad, unnamed alley that runs between those two streets. Coming from Church Street, look for Terra Christa; we are located behind that store, with plenty of parking.
Our store is near mile 11.8 on the W&OD Trail. At Church Street, turn south. Cross Center Street and, on that next block, look to the left for the store tucked away in an alley.
