Getting people on bikes that fit their body, their personality, and their lifestyle is important to the team at Gladys Bikes, a women-first bike shop in Portland, OR. Customers can create semi-custom bicycles built from the frame up. The result is a bicycle that is almost as unique as the people who ride them. In pursuit of the best, most comfortable fit, Gladys Bikes also features a saddle library that allows members to join for $25 and then check out saddles and give them a try for up to one week. After finding their dream saddle, the $25 fee goes towards the saddle purchase. The customer experience is a priority for the Gladys Bikes team and has resulted in the creation of the Gladys Advisory Board. The board represents riders of all types and meets monthly to ensure the shop is actively responding to their customers’ needs.
