The Tool Share
- Park brand bike stands (adjacent to sturdy workbenches) allow up to 10 bikes to be repaired at once. You can check out a workstand at the greeter desk.
- Each stand has a set of tools sufficient to complete most repairs.
- Park brand truing stands are available for repairing up to 3 wheels at once.
- A rollaway toolbox stocked with a complete selection of Park’s hand tools for advanced repair tasks, which can be checked out under the supervision of volunteers on staff.
- Simple metal fabrication gear is also available, subject to availability of volunteer supervision.
- Shop use costs $5/hour with a cap of $15/day. This helps to pay for rent, tools, and other expenses. If this presents a hardship for you, we are happy to arrange a work-trade for shop time. The use fee does not apply to volunteers or Build-a-Bikes.
Parts & Supplies

Come in and pick out a bike from our boneyard of donated bikes. We can help you select the size and style that’s right for your needs. We’ll also supply the tools and instruction. All we ask is that you come willing to learn and get a little greasy. Once you’ve completely revamped your new ride, which usually takes a few sessions, you can ride off into the sunset with your new bike love for only $80, plus the cost of any new or fancy parts added to your bike.
You don’t have to know how to repair bicycles to volunteer at Bike Saviours– we can teach you! We can also use any other special skills/talents/areas of expertise such as graphic design, accounting, community outreach, etc. that you may have, so let us know.
