Old About Us

Bike Saviours is non-profit community bike shop focused on empowering people with the knowledge and tools they need to build and maintain self-sufficient, low cost modes of transportation. We are a volunteer-run non-profit education center devoted to teaching people about bicycle maintenance, building and repair.

  • We operate as a bike repair tool share and education center that is completely open to the public. Our staff and volunteers will train and assist you to repair your bike from our collection of donated recycled bikes and parts.
  • We also operate as a community recycling project that collects used bikes and bike parts from donors and turns them into functional modes of transportation for people in Tempe.
  • We explore other modes of re-use for scrapped bike materials, such as bike art.

Whether you have a bike or need a bike, you can use our shop as a tool share and ask our volunteer mechanics anything you might want to know. While we don’t currently sell ready-to-ride used bikes, we offer a build-a-bike program where you repurpose a donated used bike, build it up and transform it into a functional bicycle. This process can take a few weeks, depending on the completeness of the bike you select, so be prepared to work, learn and get greasy!
