Blue Heron Bikes' Price Protection Plan
 

The bike industry, like just about every other industry, is changing in response to the internet and ecommerce.  Many customers assume that by shopping online, or by purchasing direct from a manufacturer, they are getting the best price.  This isn't always the case.  

Our Price Protection Plan is designed to remind and reassure you that the price we offer in store is coordinated with the set price of the product - sometimes called the MSRP (or manufacturer's suggested retail price).  When you see the emblem above, please don't hesitate to ask us if you see a price lower than our sticker price on items in our store.  While we try to keep up with all manufacturers price changes and sale pricing, there might be times where our pricing doesn't match what you see online with the manufacturer.  In short, let's talk.

Why Buy Locally?

Now that we've talked about price, let's quickly talk about service.

Transportation bikes, like automobiles, undergo heavy use and require periodic maintenance to last their longest.  The initial setup of your bike is critical as to how the many moving parts will age over time. 

Blue Heron Bikes is expert in setting up and servicing cargo bikes, city bikes, and electric bikes.  Benefits of buying locally include advice that will help you make smart choices about unique bikes upfront, saving you costly and time consuming returns later.

We stand by our work and we are responsive to your needs.  We're a friend and an ally in your bike lifestyle.
