In a great sign that bicycling is growing and healthy in southwest Portland (despite the area’s challenges), Burlingame Bikes has completed an expansion.

It’s just the second anniversary of the shop that was opened by father-son duo Glenn and Marc Vanselow back in May 2013.

“We appreciate our neighborhood and the Portland cycling community,” Marc shared with us in an email last week, “They have driven this expansion.”

The new space will be used for storage and is located just four doors down from the shop’s original location on the west side of Southwest Terwiliger Blvd in the Burlingame neighborhood. The shop focuses on urban, road, and road racing bikes. They are experts at working on Campagnolo components and authorized dealers for Eddy Merckx and Jamis. The shop also features a collection of vintage road bikes for sale from vaunted makers like Colnago, Gianni Motta, Ciocc, DeRosa, Waterford, and more.

Thumbs up this commend if you remember Pedal Sports, the bike shop that used to be at that intersection.

Early/mid 1990’s, next door to the dry cleaners. They sold Miyata, Norco, Gary Fisher and Barracuda brand bikes, Maybe even Kona at one time….. Tinniest shop ever!
