Work on a project bike

Purchase a frame or project bike

Interested in building or refurbishing your own bike? Shop our extensive inventory of low-cost frames and classic bikes in need of some TLC! Project bikes are sold in as-is condition and will require significant repairs to be safe to ride. Our catalog of project bikes is available online. If you see one you are interested in, contact us to make an appointment to check it out in person.

Purchase parts for your project bike

You can shop for used and retail parts during our Open Shop hours and Retail Only Hours:

Monday/Wednesday/Friday 9am – 11am
Tuesday/Thursday 6:30pm  – 9pm
Saturday 2:30pm – 5pm

Need mechanical assistance or access to tools?

We offer access to our shop for do-it-yourself repairs during Open Shop hours. It costs $3/hour to use our tools, and knowledgeable volunteer mechanics will help you with any mechanics you are unfamiliar with.  For those with financial challenges, you can fill out a form to obtain free access to the shop.

If you’d like more comprehensive instruction in bicycle mechanics, stay tuned for one of our upcoming mechanics classes and sign up!

Finally, consider volunteering for Urban Bike Project! You’ll have access to ample opportunities to improve your mechanics skills, including volunteer-only hours when you can work on your own projects. Plus, volunteers can special order parts through our wholesale account at discounted prices.
