Special Orders, Layaway & Financing


Special order iconWhile we do stock an extensive inventory, unfortunately, we can't stock everything. We can, however, special order items for you, whether it's a customized bike or trike, a bike we don't stock, or any parts and accessories carried by one of our many distributors. In order to place a special order, call us for a quote on the product you are interested in. Once we obtain the quote for you, if you wish to place an order, we will set up a layaway. A deposit of half the purchase price is required to place the special order and the balance of the purchase price is due when the item arrives at our store from the distributor. There are no returns on special orders or highly customized orders. Extra shipping charges may apply, especially on orders from overseas.


Layaway iconDepending on the time of year, the item you are purchasing, or if you are coming from far away to try and pick up an item at our store, we can set up a layaway plan for you. Items remain at the Hostel Shoppe until they are fully paid for.

Reserve a bike or trike for up to two weeks until you can come in to test ride it - $100 deposit . The deposit will be refunded to you, if you do not buy the bike or trike. Or, if you decide on a different model, we can transfer the deposit to a new item you are interested in purchasing. 

30, 60 or 90 Day Layaways - Depending on the plan you choose, deposits vary for stock items (special orders require a 50% deposit) and bi-weekly to monthly payments need to be made. The deposit can be fully refunded if you change your mind, except on special orders, which are non-refundable. This can be a great option if you are on a budget, or if you want to lay a bike away until spring when the weather gets nicer. Call us for details.


Synchrony cardIf you can't wait to get out and enjoy that new bike or trike, we do offer S-Card financing through Synchrony Financial, which is a six month, deferred interest financing program for purchases of $200 or more to qualified applicants.



  • Simple application process (May apply in store. The actual sale must take place in store, as Hostel Shoppe will need to validate the transaction with two forms of valid I.D., which are required by Synchrony Financial. Financing cannot be used for online or phone purchases.)
  • Fast credit decisions - it only takes a few minutes!
  • Six months with deferred interest - meaning if it's paid off in full within 6 months you don't pay a dime in interest!
  • Low minimum monthly payments
  • Convenient online bill pay
