Update 11/19/2020

Here’s some quick Q&A for common questions we’ve been receiving:

Can I come in?

Not yet.

When will I be able to come in?

We simply don’t know yet. We are paying very close attention to health and safety guidelines and will let everyone know when we are able to safely open the doors to the public again.

Can I buy a bike?

Yes! There are two options for bike purchases: 1. Email sales@bicas.org with a description of what sort of bike you are hoping for, your budget, and your height/inseam. Our sales team will respond with some photos directly to your inbox! 2. Come during our open hours, Tues-Saturday, 10am-2pm. Be prepared to wait in line.

there are no refunds on bikes.

Can I buy parts?

Yes. We are open Tuesday-Saturday, 10am-2pm. If you’re looking for more than that, we recommend leaving a list or email it to bicas@bicas.org so that we can gather your items.

Mask Required!

What if I need my bike fixed but don’t have much money?

We are doing repairs on a sliding scale, which should make them affordable to most people. If you are not able to pay within the scale, let BICAS staff know and we will work with you. We want everyone to have a safe, reliable method of transportation during this pandemic, regardless of funds.

I heard it might take up to 2 weeks to fix my bike. Can’t I get it any faster?

Our time-frame for repair is similar to other shops in town, which are all experiencing unprecedented volume. 

If your bike is your main mode of transportation, let BICAS staff know at intake and we will prioritize your repair.

Can I donate a bike?

Yes! You can drop off donations during open hours, Tues-Sat 10am-2pm. we can only accept good condition bicycles and parts at this time. If you have unwanted bikes that are broken/rusty we suggest you take them directly to Recyco. Thank you.

Hello how are you?
