One of the perks of living in a great bike town is great bike shopping. This weekend you’ve got two opportunities to find major scores from two very cool bike companies: The Vanilla Workshop and Vespertine.

Vanilla needs no introduction. This is the brand developed by southeast Portlander Sacha White and it includes his world-famous Vanilla Bicycles, his Speedvagen production line of cyclocross and road bikes, and the various other art, fashion and other design collaborations housed under the Vanilla Workshop banner.

This Saturday, White and his talented crew will throw open the doors of their shop at SE 17th and Powell for a “Garage Sale” that is sure to be full of brag-worthy, hard-to-find items at great prices. The event flyer promises deals on products from Edge, Phil Wood, Chris King Precision Components, Fizik, Shimano, Campy, Vanilla team kit, and much more.
