Refurbished & Used Bicycles

Here at the shop, we specialize in recycled bikes that are ready for many more years of service as your daily ride.

What does refurbished mean to us? All of our bikes get overhauled from top to bottom. Each bike is stripped down to just the frame, washed, and rebuilt using a mixture of new and overhauled used parts. All of our bikes get brand new wheels, tires, tubes, brake pads, chains, freewheels or cassettes, bottom bracket, and cables & housing. Most also get new grips, pedals, brake levers, seatposts, and saddles. Some get new derailleurs, brakes, handlebars, or headsets (as needed). 

Pricing: All donated bicycles are evaluated and appraised by our mechanics before refurbishing. Bikes are primarily split up into three categories based on the overall quality of the frame and components, see below for details.

 

City Bike, $375+

Our city basic line offers an excellent “round the town” option. Typically consisting of older steel or cro-moly frames, this line is great for those seeking a bike that will provide basic transportation or a nice weekend ride. Completely refurbished with new single walled wheels. All new cable systems, chain, freewheel, tires, tubes, handlebars, brake pads, headset, grips and saddle/seatpost. Includes flat bar, cruiser and drop style handlebar options.


City Deluxe, $425+

The city deluxe line features bikes which boast lighter frame material such as aluminum or butted higher end steel. These bikes typically offer a stiffer and lighter ride. The deluxe line offers double walled wheels with sealed bearing hubs making future serviceability easy while prolonging the life of your wheels. Shifting systems include either friction or index. All aspects of replacement parts are the same as the basic city line.  


Performance, $475+

Our performance line often consists of newer bikes or high end classic/rare bikes that are donated to us. These types of bikes are aimed at fitness, long distance, road racing, touring or triathlons. Mainly having drop handlebars with STI shifters and lighter frame material such as aluminum, butted steel, carbon fiber or titanium. The classic or “collectors” bikes will often have all original components in mint or near mint condition and are great for those looking for a unique ride.

 

Other

Sometimes we get donated bikes that are in their own league either because they’re uncommon, custom built or just plain weird. Check out our Ebay store for those or call to inquire about what we have in stock.

Sizing: Bikes come in a wide range of sizes, and it is very important to find the right fit. When the bike is stopped you'll be standing with your feet on the ground and your butt off the saddle, and so you want to make sure you're able to stand comfortably over the top bar of the frame. Frames are measured from the center of the crankbolt up to the seatpost insert along the frame. This is different from the 'inseam' which corresponds to the distance from the frame top tube to the ground.

Height Road Bike
4'10" - 5'2" 47-48cm, 18.5-18.9"
5'2" - 5'6" 49-50cm, 19.3-19.7"
5'3 - 5'6" 51-53cm, 20.1-20.9"
5'6" - 5'9" 54-55cm, 21.3-21.7"
5'9" - 6'0" 56-58cm, 22.0-22.8"
6'0" - 6'3" 58-60cm, 22.8-23.6"
6'3" - 6'6" 61-63cm, 24.0-24.8"

All of our refurbished bikes come with a 90-day mechanical guarantee on parts and labor, are entitled to a free 30-day tune-up, and a year-long 10% discount on new parts and accessories you buy in the shop. All bike sales are final.

Not sure what kind of bike you need? We're here to help! If you're new to biking or are just not sure where to begin, we'll ask you a few questions about your bicycling plans, explain the features each bike has, and help you find one that fits you and your needs.

We maintain a wide selection in many sizes and styles. Whether you're new to biking or you're looking for a specific kind of bike, our advice is to come prepared to test ride!

New Bikes - Bianchi & Surly

We also stock a full line of city, road, and touring bikes from Bianchi and can order any bike from their catalog for you. We can also special order Surly bikes by request.

Bianchi Volpe 2019

Comfort/City Hybrid Bikes

The Bianchi Cortina (and Cortina Dama), Bianchi Torino (and Torino Dama) are great options for those looking for a comfortable city bike with a more upright riding position. These hybrid models have wider tires and plenty of room for fenders and a rack.

Performance/City Hybrid Bikes

The Bianchi C-Sport SE and C-Sport 1 Acera feature a less upright riding position but still retain the versatility needed in a city bike, such as being able to fit racks and fenders. The C-Sport 1 Acera comes with disc brakes making them ideal for a brisk and spirited commute.

Touring/Gravel/All Road Bikes

The Bianchi Volpe features Shimano Tiagra STI shifters and wide range gearing in a gravel bike setup. They have the versatility to fit wide tires, fenders, and racks, while still remaining fast and fun.

Kids' Bikes

We stock brand name 16", 20", and 24" refurbished youth bikes. Prices start around $100.
