EnSelle, a bike shop that focuses exclusively on road bikes, will close its doors at the end of this year.
EnSelle was founded by Jask Liskear in 1998 and has built a strong niche as “the shop for connoisseurs of fine road bikes.” Liskear is a dealer for BMC and Land Shark bikes and his shop (located just off SW Macadam Blvd) is officially certified for repairs by Campagnolo and Shimano. In addition to the latest and greatest bikes, EnSelle is full of classic memorabilia of the sport he loves.
Liskear announced the big news via a customer email sent out today at noon:
“WOW…. what an adventure! I opened EnSelle in June of 1998 and haven’t looked back. In those years, I have built countless custom bikes, wheels, fixed too many flats to count and loved the business for all these years. Best of all I have met and gained hundreds of customers who have turned into friends. What a Joy!
But alas, after all these years I want to ride my bike more! I want to head to the hills with Robin, do extended credit card touring, and see Oregon! My love of bikes is why I started EnSelle in the first place and now it is time to close up the shop and RIDE!
Starting November 28th, 2014 (Friday) Everything is 40% off. Everything goes. I will sell off all my tools, fixtures, selected clothing, memorabilia jerseys, pictures, cycling caps, fitting equipment, spokes, hubs, rims, components. Everything in the store goes and all at 40% off. Cash or credit card accepted.
Thank you for supporting me for all these years. I couldn’t have done it without YOU.”
Jack looks forward to seeing all his loyal customers in these final weeks. The shop’s last day will be December 31st.
