Stone's Cyclery

Alameda Point Concours d'Elegance

Do you like Classic Cars? Do you like Vintage Bikes? Do you like State of the Art Steel bikes? Stone's Cyclery and Bella Bici will be sharing a booth this Sunday at the Inagural Alameda Point Conours Car Show. We will be unveiling our latest creation with all the bells and whistles. I wish there was a bicycle class to enter it in the show. You can also check out the very cool selection of Stainless Steel Lugs from Waterford Precision Cycles if you have not yet had a chance to check them out in the shop. The lug display is headed back to Wisconson after the show. So please come by to check out all the cool cars, some very nice Vintage bikes, and some the amazing Waterford, and Gunnar builds, from Stone's.

[05/31/16]   Hi everyone.

Some folks have asked for our price range.
We find that the $$$$$$$ method Facebook uses is not representative of prices for a shop like ours, considering the variety of Bikes that we offer. So we prepared the following to give you an idea of what price levels we have available.

Town Bikes from $299 through about $599
Stock Road Bikes from $699 through about $1599
Gunar Road Bike Frame sets from $1250
Complete Gunnar custom built Bikes from about $2250
Fully custom Waterford Frame sets from $1875

Please feel free to call or write with any questions you may have, and...

Thanks for considering Stone's for your next Bike purchase.

Stone's Cyclery is headed to L'Eroica! We'll be sharing a booth with Bella Bici cycles on Saturday.

Come visit us in Paso Robles if you want to check out the Waterford "Booth in a Box".

We will be closed on Friday and Saturday to attend this event.

Normal operating hours will resume on Tuesday.

[02/23/16]   Stone's Cyclery will be closed this Friday the 26th. We are going to; The North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS) in Sacramento.

Dennis Stone passed away Wednesday July 8th after a 3 year battle with cancer and it's complications. Dennis' Father Harry opened Stone's in 1943. Dennis took over in 1963. He has been a fixture of Bay Area, and US, cycling over the years. We will honor Dennis with a memorial ride this Sunday the 26th. of July.

The ride will depart Rockwall Winery, 2301 Monarch Street, Alameda, Ca. at 9:00 AM. since we need to be back in time for the memorial service that will take place from 1:00 until 4:00 PM. at Rockwall. The ride will cross the island, then onto the Oyster Bay loop, then finish with a Bay Farm Island loop, adding up to about 29 miles. There will be bailouts at about 6 miles, and 17 miles, all flat of course.

The route is posted on RideWithGPS.

Everyone who knew Dennis is welcome to participate in the ride, or the service, or the after service (Wake) at the shop, starting about 5:00 PM. Feel free to attend any or all of these events as you please.

As a side note, Dennis wanted, and both his family, and John want, Stone's Cyclery to carry on. We will do our best to keep the Stone's legacy ongoing.

Thanks in advance for any and all condolences for Dennis' family.

Waterford R33 with SRAM Red

Here's the latest to roll out of the shop. A few quick pics before the customer comes down to retrieve his belated Christmas gift. We think it turned out rather nicely. Just a hair under 16.5 pounds as equipped. It's the first time we've played with the new SRAM stuff and we have to say that we're mighty impressed. Much easier to feed the shifter cables through than either current offerings from Campy or Shimano. The owner of this bike hopes to complete his first Devil Mountain Double this year, and will be rolling the Death Valley Fall Double in March as a warm-up.

Mixed Terrain bicycle (Volagi Viaje)

The mechanic at the shop is good friends with the fine folks at Volagi Cycles. When the opportunity to jump onboard their "Kickstarter" program arose, he pulled the trigger. Like the Gunnar Hyper-X posted earlier, this bike is meant to serve double duty as a "mixed terrain"/"gravel-grinder"/"adventure" bike.

White Industries T11/Velocity A23 wheelset

This is the latest road hubset from White Industries laced to a pair of Velocity A23 rims. Rear is laced to an OC rim, 24x with DT Competition spokes. The front wheel is laced 2x to a standard A23 using DT Revolution spokes. Brass nipples all the way around. The rear T11 hub is engineered to accomodate the newer 11 speed cassettes. This wheelset will accompany one of our customers on a 4 person 2 man/2 woman Race Across America team this June.

Waterford 33 series fixed gear

This frame is a blend of S3 True Temper tubing for the main triangle and Reynolds 953 stainless for the rear. It was originally commissioned for the 2008 North American Handmade Bicycle Show in Portland. This bike has been ridden on 12 California Triple Crown Double Centuries, including the infamous Devil Mountain Double. It was also part of a 4 person (2 man/2woman) fixed gear Furnace Creek 508 team that set a record for their category in 2012

This is David Palmer. He came into the shop about 6 months ago and bought a 68cm Gunnar, his first bike that fit him. From then on its been amazing to see his evolution into cycling; from just rides in the bay to now a full cross country journey.
