We never know from week to week what we will have on hand. If we can't find something to fit you, come back next week.
Non-suspension adult mountain bikes and hybrid bikes are the best. A bike that can be ridden year round and in any weather.
We give out very few kids bikes and our clients do not want bikes with skinny tires.
The very best bikes that we receive we will try to sell to help pay for our operations.
We distribute up to 50 bikes a month. We would love to put the bikes cluttering up your basement or hanging in your garage into the hands of people who need them.
We give away bikes and accessories at no cost to clients with a voucher from a partner agency. A bike that is free to a client may be worth an equivalent of $100 or more in parts and labor to Gate City Bike Co-op. The average bike requires 2 to 4 hours of repair time, sometimes much longer. A full overhaul takes 4-6 hours.
Most of the bikes we repair need parts. We repair and reuse parts whenever possible, but often we have to purchase parts.
