Orbea Gain e-Bikes

Racing bikes from Spain. Like you see in the Tour de France, but with nearly unnoticeable hub motors in the back wheels. These can be had with either Aluminum or Carbon frames, with Shimano Ultegra (Di2 or mechanical), 105, or Tiagra components. Special order only, we don't keep them in stock. More to follow, watch this space!



Gazelle Dutch Bikes

Ride with the Dutch! An excellent bike for cruising around town, riding to work or grabbing some groceries. Very powerful Bosch motor with 4 levels of assist and a lithium-ion battery. This bike has a range up to 65 miles and will put a smile on your face. Call for a test ride and we'll show you how much fun it can be to ride a bike up the green hills of Vermont!

7/16/19 - Gazelle electric bikes are a hit! We have sold and reordered three batches of these and customers report they like them a lot. Part of the excitement is certainly from the new, $200 rebate program from Green Mountain Power and the low-interest transportation loans from VT State Employees Credit Union.

West River Trail

Brattleboro's flat, riverside woods trail is back to normal after completion of the I-91 bridge.





You need lights

Many people are unaware that Vermont bicycle law was changed a couple of years ago to better reflect a cyclist's status as a vehicle. Front and rear lights are now required on all bikes from 1/2-hour after sunset until 1/2-hour before sunrise. Operating a vehicle without proper lighting is a moving violation and carries a pretty stiff fine (like 80 bucks or so). We have lots of lighting options for less than $80.

The best deal on a budget headlight we have found so far is the CygoLite Dart 100. For $32.95 you get 100 lumens of LED lighting powered up by a Li-ion battery you recharge from a micro USB port. The Dart 100 is many times brighter than the little, 3-LED flashlights you get in a front-rear set for $30, yet is costs only around ten dollars more than those. High beam, low beam, flashing modes, and the whole thing weighs about the same as the eight quarters you might have carried to shovel into a Brattlebor parking meter.

Good lights are one thing you can't afford to be without, especially at this time of year!



Bike maps from Windham Regional Commission

You can go to our regional planning commission's web site and download some very special maps—bicycle suitability maps, to be exact. These are maps showing hills, shoulders, traffic volumes, and road surfaces as they matter to cyclists.

New traffic patterns downtown

  • Please note that the sidewalk in front of our store has been widened to improve the pedestrian environment in this busy intersection. There is no longer parking directly in front of our Paramount building. There is a loading zone just past us (in front of A Candle In The Night) where you can stop to load and unload your bikes. There is no sign for this, but the meter maids have assured us they will not ticket a car with flashers on stopping to load or unload. DO NOT BLOCK THE DRIVEWAY!
  • Long term parking for our end of Main Street is either the High-Grove lot, 1/2 block up High St. from us, or at the parking garage on Elliot St.




Southern Vermont's oldest continuously operating bike business

Brattleboro Bicycle Shop is a year-round, professional sales and service store right in the middle of Vermont's coolest downtown. We sell and service most types of bikes and support bikes as transportation in southern Vermont.

Our mission is to provide the highest level of person-to-person service for anyone who loves to ride bikes, especially those who prefer them to cars. We depend on cars, too, but Brattleboro Bicycle Shop believes the world will be a better place if the pendulum swings away from cars and back towards people.

New for Spring!

Jamis Bicycles

We are happy to introduce Jamis Bicycles to our stable of offerings.We have been impressed with the quality of these bicycles. The Durango A1 29er pictured is an entry level mountain bike with hydraulic disc brakes, adjustable suspension fork, aluminum frame at a very reasonable $629.

We are also stocking trail hybrids from Jamis that are great for pavement, dirt roads and the West River Trail. The Jamis Dxt and Dxt Sport have a less agressive position but are agile enough to climb hills.
