Visit Rivendell Bicycle Works
We're about 30 miles east of San Francisco, and just a six-minute amble or a three-minute bike ride through a supersafe business district from Walnut Creek BART. For years we were hard to find in our warehouse headquarters but we have a new showroom right downtown. Come and visit. There are shops and restaurants nearby.
NOTE: We do not have the facilities, staff or spare parts to service any non-Rivendell bikes. Plenty of other local shops in the area can wrench you bikes, but please understand we can only work on Rivendell bicycles, our specialty.

Us in a nutshell
We're a small specialty bicycle business, a little out of step with the times. We sell lugged steel frames, leather saddles, wool clothing, and with few exceptions, gear geared toward the super enthusiastic non-competitor. That means we have really good, really neat stuff, but we don't stock 20-spoke wheels, 700x22 tires, 145g saddles, tight plastic clothing, aerodynamic sunglasses, or carbon fiber.
What we do have is beautiful and made to use hard and endure. Much of it is made in Japan, most of it is made just for us, and we sell almost nothing that's made in China. That's a fact, not a political statement. We buy from original manufacturers when possible, most of which have been in business for decades and scores. We have never searched out a cheap price, and our goods are affordable (to the extent that they are) because we buy direct and sell direct. It's the ol' "eliminate the middle man" game gone nuts.
Open Monday through Friday 9am to 5pm Pacific Time. And Saturdays 10-4.
We're friendly and helpful, but sometimes we have dates and dinner with family, so please come in early enough before closing time to get your test rides and business done.
