Donations of used bikes in good condition are taken whenever the shop is open. If you are getting a new bicycle, donate your old bike to Sharing Wheels. Adult bikes are fixed and sold to keep the shop running.
We need children’s bikes each fall and spring as we prepare for Christmas House and the Kids Bike Swap.
We ask for a $5 cash donation with each bike we accept to help defray our costs of repairs.
We do not accept all bikes. Some bikes are too rusty or abused to fix. We may advise you to take it to the transfer station instead – they can recycle your bike, tires and all. Some bikes just take too many parts or too much volunteer time to make safe and rideable.
We do not buy or trade bicycles.
Sharing Wheels is a non-profit organization. The fair market value of bike donations is tax deductible. We are happy to provide a receipt for your donation.
Used Bicycle Sales
Sharing Wheels bikes range from low quality ride-around-town bikes for $50 to higher-end bikes costing $150 to $300 that you might use in your first triathlon or ride to Portland.
Generally, if you’re looking to get into biking at low cost, you’ll get more for your money at Sharing Wheels than buying a new bike.
We often sell the best bikes on Craiglist, so check us out.
Used Bike Parts
Do you have an older bike and want parts to match? Are you creating your own fixed gear, “Franken-bike'” or chopper tricycle? Sharing Wheels has hundreds of used parts of various qualities and conditions – some like new.
We have frames, wheels, cranks, derailleurs, brake parts and bolts galore. We also have accessories such as fenders, bike bags, bike racks, and car racks. We even get trail-a-bikes for kids sometimes.
