Welcome to Quad Bikes, the unofficial-official Harvard bike shop.


Fall 2017 schedule of events and early closures:

  • Thanksgiving: we’re still figuring out our exact schedule, but for now we’re planning on being closed from Wednesday 11/22 until we open again the following Tuesday. We”ll try to find coverage for that Friday and Saturday, but it’s best to call ahead if you need us on those days. Thanks!
  • UPDATE 11/21: We will be OPEN on Wednesday 11/22 and OPEN on Friday 11/24. We will be CLOSED on Thursday 11/23 and CLOSED on Saturday 11/25. Sorry for the weird schedule, just trying to work around our travel/holiday schedule. Thanks!

Services:

We are a full-service bicycle workshop. We primarily focus on repairs, although we have a limited selection of the most useful accessories (helmets, lights, and locks), as well as a small selection of new bicycles for sale. Rarely, we will have used bicycles, but call or email ahead for our selection. For a larger selection of new bicycles for sale, please check out our partner organization, Crimson Bikes.

For tune-ups, please call or email ahead to schedule an appointment. Turnaround time for tune-ups varies considerably depending on the season, but expect to leave your bike at least overnight, typically 2-3 days. We may do same-day tune-ups during the winter; in the spring and fall, tune-ups can take up to a week or longer.
