We're still closed to the public for in store purchases but are shipping parts usually same or next day. If you'd like to pick up your order here, select "Pick it up at Rivendell" and give us a ring when you're 20 minutes out. Operators are standing by to help with bike and frame purchases, although those may take awhile to ship.

How We Pack Your Bike

The best bike packing in the world

We use a stiff, expensive custom cardboard box. It costs $30.

We use foam blocks that cost about $5 each to pad the bike in various spots. Some of these are custom cut for us, some we cut up ourselves. Some slip over tubes, some are hot-glued to the sides of the box.

Then we use other foam for special padding purposes, to keep fenders or other parts from rubbing on themselves or something else.

Robert developed the method, then taught it to Mark, who taught it to Eric, who taught Emil who you see in the video. It takes him about two hours for a normal bike.
