New Philly Store Hours

Our Philadelphia flagship store is going to be operating under a new schedule, effective immediately:

Monday: Closed
Tuesday: Appointment only*
Wednesday: Appointment only*
Thursday: 11-6
Friday: 11-6
Saturday: 12-6
Sunday: Closed

The basic premise is that this way we will be able to focus even more on designing and making new products and our existing orders. We will still of course be answering the phone on tuesdays and wednesdays. So, really, this only affects a small percentage of our Philly customers. For everybody else, all that will happen is that you'll notice we have a LOT more new and amazing things than ever before!

* Appointments can be set up for any time between noon and 7pm on tuesdays and wednesdays, but must be made with at least 24 hours notice. Please call 215-922-2018 if you need to set one up!

The Philadelphia Pedal Cooperative

The Pedal Co-Op is a worker-run organization that offers environmentally friendly services to local businesses in Philadelphia such at recycling-by-bicycle. We currently use trailers that are attached to bicycles to transport compost to local gardens, recyclables to Blue Mountain Recycle (only single stream recycling center in Philadelphia), and the trash to the waste management facilities. The Pedal Co-Op’s aspiration is to diminish the caustic environmental impact that is threaded into the everyday modern life. We are dedicated to an ethical and sound business practice which promotes the fair and cooperative business ideology. Furthermore, we encourage the idea of a sustainable lifestyle.
