It was a sad day when I read this…

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Bisbee Bicycle Brothel will be closing its retail store and going virtual in April. We will be doing online sales and traveling to bike swaps/shows around the country. I have had a great time meeting fellow vintagistas in the shop and will miss it, but its time to move on, do some travel, and get back on the bike. I am having a sale and will be having a bike swap at the shop and the building next door on April 13 from 9AM-3PM. No fee. It’s the day before the Tucson Bike Swap so hope we get a lot of visitors. Bring your bike items and a table or blanket for display. No big vehicles of items since space (and parking) are limited. Thanks for your support over the last seven and a half years.

There isn’t much time left to make it to the Bicycle Brothel in Bisbee, AZ but if the vintage bicycle is religion you seek, I’d highly suggest making a pilgrimage to the mecca!  I know I’m going to try.  For those of you that are too far away or just don’t have the time, I’d highly suggest taking a look at these three write ups and picture essays on the  Bicycle Brothel.

Velo Cult: Bisbee Bicycle Brothel!

Path Less Pedaled: Bisbee and the Bike Brothel!

Velo Cult: Miscellaneous Items from The Bisbee Bicycle Brothel!

If I don’t make it to the Bisbee Bicycle Brothel before the end, I just wanted to say thank you to Velo Cult and Path Less Pedaled for taking the time to stop in, photograph, and share your experience with the world.

Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s almost gone?

  1. I passed by this place when my gf and i went to visit her parents in Arizona, unfortunately the store was at lunch at the time, never had the chance to walk inside but through the window the place looked pretty amazing, had a really good feel to it; it felt like it should stay there forever.

    sorry to hear theyre closing, definitely should be checked out. the city of bisbee is a pretty cool place to visit as well, one of the first cities in Arizona. It’s a small town.
