Bluegrass Bicycle Company
We are a bicycle shop AND a record store too! We sell hand-picked, curated vintage vinyl records, cassette tapes and CD's. We love to share our passion for physical-format music with others.
We strive to provide a completely different experience than typical, traditional retail record stores. We want to provide an experience that we would want ourselves if we were out shopping for vinyl records and vintage music.
What to Expect
~ We work by appointment. Please contact us before you visit as we do not have regular open retail hours. Each customer or small group of customers has exclusive access to the store during their visit. Feel free to bring some friends. We love to host small groups.
~ We’re always happy to provide friendly musical advice or recommendations. If you’re new to vintage music collecting we can make recommendations for things you might like. If you're an experienced collector we'll try to guide you to something unique that you might not see anywhere else.
~ We do not put price tags or stickers on any merchandise. Most of our merchandise is listed online on Discogs, and prices, condition and special notes can be viewed from a smartphone or one of our devices in the store.
~ We have a Sonos sound system throughout the shop that customers can even control with an easily downloadable app on their smartphones. Listen to whatever you want at the volume you want on a premium sound system.
~ We enjoy hosting out-of-town record collectors and musicians. We are just off multiple interstate highways, and we are a reasonable Uber/Lyft ride from the Indianapolis airport, downtown Indianapolis and other points in the Indy area.
~ We have premium record and cassette displays for comfortable browsing. We also have height-adjustable, padded stools for getting to things that are low.
~ We accept cash, check, any major credit card (including American Express) and Apple Pay.
~ We occasionally host exclusive, live shows for our customers with local, regional and national artists.
~ We always have complimentary water, coffee, espresso and herbal tea. We typically have craft beer as well.
We deal in a very wide variety of music, but we tend to buy and sell more from the following genres:
~ Classic Rock
~ Jazz Fusion
~ Progressive Rock
~ Pop Rock
~ New Age/Ambient
~ African-American Gospel
~ Jazz Rap
~ Conscious Rap
We Buy Vintage Music
If you have vinyl records, cassette tapes or CD's that you would like to sell please get in touch with us to make an appointment. Once we see your collection we can determine if it’s something that we can use and make you a reasonable, fair offer.
We also have a program called “Music for Good” where we buy your collection and instead of paying you the proceeds we make a donation in your name to the charitable organization of your choice. It's a great way to clean out your closets, basement, garage or attic and do some good at the same time!

~ Over 3000 vinyl LP records
~ Over 500 vinyl 45’s
~ Over 1500 cassette tapes
