I see old habits die hard I just left the store and I walked around for a little under 10 minutes and no one offered to assist me same old Alameda I'll take my money elsewhere
I want to thank the entire crew at the shop for their support and wonderful donation to the raffle we held during the classic bike show on October 12th. The show was a success once again and we look forward to next year. Gene,George,Hannah,and the rest of the crew are top notch and deserving of our praise,respect,and continued business. THANK YOU SO MUCH,Brian,aka Island Schwinn, and all my friends who attended this year.
It was great to be part of the event thank you to all the families that made it to our store cheers with Italian ice to many more to come😊
Honestly, there’s a lot to love about my Specialized Ruby, because she is a sweet, sweet ride. But the way she sparkles in the sunlight has to be my favorite, as it makes me smile every time I see it! #alamedabicycle50th
Thanks to everyone at Alameda Bicycle for setting me up with my Giant Defy-!#alamedabicycle50th
This was our first ride with Alameda Bicycle! And not the last #alamedabycicle50th We are singed up for the ride4park and can't wait to pedal our way around Alameda again.
Love my white Specialized Ruby! These shots are from a couple training rides before my big Bike Zambia trip last summer. You all were great in helping me prepare! #AlamedaBicycle50th
I love riding my bike around Alameda. There’s nothing like taking a ride along the water on a warm evening. Living on the same street as Alameda Bicycle has also been the best...whenever I have a bike question, I don’t have too far to go to get some help. And everyone’s always been incredibly friendly! #alamedabicycle50th
There’s nothing like heading out on two wheels with the guy who bought you your first bike when you were three years old. Here’s me and my Pops truckin’ down Fernside at the beginning of a nice loop around the island. #alamedabicycle50th
Purchased bike from #alamedabicycle50th 10 years ago, to train for a century. Fast forward 10 years and many centuries later, to the LA River Ride. Riding along the LA River! Who knew?
Riding together is the best part of biking. #alamedabicycle50th

Nesting projects. While some families go crazy building out and decorating a “nursery”, we mostly tried to figure out how to continue our bike lifestyle once our baby arrived. When Stephanie was pregnant, we fawned over Larry vs. Harry’s Bullitt, tried out the very-Euro Riese and Müller Packster, and bought into the front load aesthetic right away.

Beyond Gender Product Philosophy

Through combined research, and with data from over 8,000 Retül fits, Specialized has learned that all riders are unique, and that the stereotypes of body shape are largely inaccurate. Body proportions vary as much within a gender as between them. Here is a video of Specialized explaining their product philosophy and how it is changing.
