Free World-Wide Shipping on René Herse Components

At Compass Cycles, we’ve been excited to see interest in our components grow all over the world. We now work with more than 500 bike shops, as well as a number of international distributors. However, some components are difficult for shops to stock. Our cranks are a typical example: They are available in three lengths, as singles, doubles or triples, with dozens of chainring combinations. And then there are the tandem cranks… Every crank is custom-assembled to order here in Seattle. It makes for a great product, but it also means that it’s difficult for most bike shops to stock all the parts needed to build these cranks.

This means that ordering directly from Compass Cycles often is the most practical solution. To make this easier for our international customers, we now offer free shipping worldwide on René Herse components. This offer includes big components like cranks and, soon, the new cantilever brakes, but not small parts like bolts, chainrings and cable hangers.

For our less specialized components, like Compass tires and handlebars, as well as the parts we distribute from Gilles Berthoud (saddles, bags), Schmidt Maschinenbau (lights, generator hubs), Honjo (fenders) and MKS (pedals), we encourage you to buy from local shops that carry these products.

    Any dealer at Brasil already?

  2. Rick Thompson says:

    I’m assembling my bike, and have a question on the Herse cranks. The cranks came with two washers, which appear to be sized to fit under the heads of the crank bolts. The instructions do not mention these washers, but they do say “The rear of the bolt heads must be dry to interlock with the crank and prevent loosening”. This seems to imply that one should not use washers here. What is the correct way to install?
