Our History and Philosophy
Thanks for taking the time to look us up. Fairhaven Bicycles was founded by John Hauter on October 10th, 1971. His two brothers, father, sister and mother all helped open Fairhaven Bicycle.
Our mission is to provide the best quality cycling equipment and experience possible. We achieve this by showing customers respect and listening to their wants and needs.
We are proud of the store's history. It was the first snowboard shop in Bellingham and in Whatcom County and the first to introduce Bellingham to mountain bikes with the Lowell Knight and later the Specialized Stumpjumper. Check out the picture of Guy Morrissey on top of Mount Baker in 1984 in the elevator lobby on the first floor!
A store is only as good as the people who work in it and we are fortunate to have a great team to help you make the best choices possible. We will provide the kind of quality & service you expect from a good friend. We also rent road bikes, mountain bikes and around town bikes.
At Fairhaven Bicycles, we are proud to carry a variety of Bicycles and cycling supplies. Our brands are of the highest quality, including: Specialized, Yeti, Electra, Dahon, Izip and Raleigh electic bikes plus a full line up of Specilaized clothing for all your cycling needs.
Our store has always had a strong emphasis on quality first and an eye for good value. Thank you for taking the time to check us out online. I want to personally invite you to visit our store on your next trip through Fairhaven and we hope to see you soon!
