At Sellwood Cycle Repair, we are deeply invested in both the immediate community that supports and keeps our shop going, as well as the larger Sellwood-Moreland community that surrounds the shop.  From sponsoring cycling teams and individuals, to working within the Sellwood-Moreland neighborhood and larger Portland cycling community, the reverberations of Sellwood Cycle Repair are much grander than the confines of the shop.



  • Team S & M: The official team of Sellwood Cycle Repair
  • Les Femmes de S & M: The female division of Team S & M
  • Young Guns: Sellwood Cycle’s factory team of sorts, sponsoring promising young riders at the highest levels of competition.
  • Gentle Lovers: A perfect foil to Team S & M.  The Gentle Lovers are fast, without taking themselves too seriously.
  • Team Cthulhu: The call of Cthulhu beckons these cycling denizens of brutality.
  • Lazy Tarantulas: A powerhouse of a team run by our friends Geoff & Gregg Rice.
  • Sellwood Cycling Club: Less of a team, and more of a group made up of many neighborhood friends.



  • Steven Beardsley: A real speedy individual, who rides for Gentle Lovers.
  • Ross Kenney: A friend who embarked on a cross country tour and back upon his Kona Jake this past summer.
  • Alice Pennington: A top finisher in whatever discipline, both locally and nationally.
  • Luke Pennington: Alice’s younger brother.  A legend in his own right, and a masterful storyteller.
  • Bobby Lemanski: Perhaps the biggest Green Bay Packers fan we know other than Tonkin himself.
  • Sean Burles: A renaissance man of sorts, who races Super-D and cyclocross.
  • Matt Picio: Another friend of the shop who embarked on a cross country tour aboard his Kona Sutra.
