It's that time of year again. Portland gets dark at 4pm, and folks are packing rain gear and reflectors for their daily rides. The holidays are on their way, and that can only mean one thing – BikeCraft is back!
As the name implies, it's the marriage of two of our favorite things. It's a holiday marketplace of unique, handcrafted products & gifts for bike lovers, and it's all made right here in Portland OR.

Not long after Curtis set up shop in his basement on Woodward Ave, he first found out about BikeCraft from friend Kiel Johnson (Bike Train, Go By Bike). “I think I literally had two prototype bags to show at the time, but I remember meeting a lot of great folks who I'm still in business with today.” As you can see, this was during a short-lived stint under the name “3bags”, which was changed to “North St. Bags” a few months later.
Are you a proud owner of a 3bag? We'd love to hear from you! Send us a photo & stories from your commute.
