Who We Are

CrimsonBikes is a bike shop located in Cambridge, MA. We started at Harvard University in 2009 as a student bike program. In the years since we've grown to a full service bike shop. Along with our sister-shop, QuadBikes, we offer the highest quality bikes and service to the Boston area for a fraction of the price you'd pay elsewhere. We are passionate cyclists. We live on two wheels. And some of us know the words to one too many Bon Jovi songs. We are CrimsonBikes.

 
 
 

Things We Care About


Making Bike Ownership More ConvenienT

Buying and owning a bike can be a real pain in the neck. We get that, and we're here to help. We take the hassle out of the buying process by offering high-quality bikes at affordable prices. Our "Perfect Bike Finder" makes it easy to know what bikes are right for you. Our service plans cover the unexpected costs that arise from repairs and theft. Our online platform ties it all together, allowing you to coordinate it all with just a few clicks. 

 

Bridging The Social Gap in Biking

In the US, women and people of color each make up less than 25% of biking commuters. A team of cyclists from varied backgrounds, our mission is to make biking accessible to as many people as possible. Everything from our model, to our product descriptions, to our products are designed to be inclusive. We want to create a shop that not only appeals to current bikers, but attracts and empowers people from all walks of life to begin biking as a lifestyle.

 

Supporting Local Bike Shops

While our storefront may be mostly digital, CrimsonBikes is a champion for the local bike shop. We've been in Cambridge for 6 years, we employ local staff, and we are active in our community. We know what it's like to run a local bike shop: hard. The LBS is an integral part of the biking community and we hope to contribute to their success by pioneering a model that helps make bike shops more efficient, convenient and ultimately more profitable.
