Check out our inventory of refurbished bicycles!

We carry a large selection of used bicycles that are overhauled by our mechanics and given a multi-point inspection so they’re ready to ride out the door. Here's what's been built up recently at the St George Bicycle Collective shop:

Our inventory changes regularly. Check back frequently and visit our shop often! 

Women's Night

Women's Night header   new

Bicycle maintenance has traditionally been a male-dominated environment. Let's change that!

Women’s Night offers a safe and supportive environment for females and those who identify to volunteer in the shop or fix their own bikes. Participants learn new skills, get practical help with their own bikes, and contribute to our bicycle giveaway programs. Join us whether you have experience with bicycles or not.

The Women's Night events and group are for: Anyone who identifies as female, transgender, femme, genderqueer, trans-masculine, trans-feminine, or feels that their socialization or treatment as a woman, transperson*, femme has impeded their participation in bicycle mechanics.

For those working on their own bikes, there is a $10/hour suggested donation (more if you can, less if you can't).

Join our virtual community at: facebook.com/groups/obcwomen for Women's Night info, updates and to talk bikes, biking and bike mechanics.

OBC Women’s Night is on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month 5 - 7PM.

 

 

 

Accepting Donations of Bicycles and Parts

20 April 2020

After a challenging month, we have made significant steps to re-starting our operations to fulfill our mission of getting people on bikes.  On March 30, we started selling bikes and parts on line and by appointment. The following week we began offering repair services at our locations.  We are now ready to once again accept donations of bikes, parts and accessories (i.e, trainers, racks, etc). We would love to give your old bike a second life or strip it for parts.  We recycle what is not usable or worth repairing. 

Here is the protocol for bringing in donations. 

Please call or email the shop at which you would like to make the donation to set up a time. 

  • Salt Lake City Shop - 801-328-2453 | 
  • Provo Shop - 801-210-9032 | 
  • Ogden Shop - 801-997-0336 | 
  • St. George Shop - 435-574-9304 | 

We greatly appreciate you washing the bike down with soap and water.  Please do the same for parts. 

When you arrive at the shop, please wear a face mask and gloves.  We will do the same. If you would like a receipt for the donation, please provide either an email address or phone number for us to send the receipt. 

We are taking things slowly with much caution and compassion.  Please be patient and flexible with us as it may take us a day or two to respond to your email or phone call as we are handling many requests.

We are humbled by and extremely grateful for the health care professionals, farmers, grocery store workers, delivery people, public servants and many others who are working their hardest right now.  

Thank you.

Wash Hands, Stay Safe and Get Outside and Ride.

 

YOSlive

Hey Everyone!

Youth Open Shop: Live is a weekly livestream where we do our best to answer your questions and help you learn more about bikes! Currently we stream every week on

Tuesday @ 5:00 p.m. (Utah time)

 Every week we go over a simple topic about bike repair, bike tools, bike riding, or bike facts. We do these live so that if you would like to ask a bike related question we can go over them right then and there! Any bike related questions are welcome! Whether we are covering that topic in the stream or not, we would love to answer your bike related questions!

Safety Rules

Now, if you would like to participate, we ask that everyone you follow a few simple safety rules:

Internet Safety

1. Be Excellent to Each Other

Always treat other people online with respect! Don't engage people who want to make you angry or are trying to start arguments.

2. Guard Your Privacy

You can always post anonymously if you would like. If you do post with your name be sure to only include your first name, last initial, and general area where your from. (Example: Melody T. West Haven, Utah)

3. Bike Photos

We would love to show pictures of your bike problems and help you learn how to fix them! You can email your bike photos to  but there are a two important rules: Have it be against a plain background like a wall, your yard, or the pavement; and don't show any personal information, such as someone's face, your house number, the license plate of a car, or anything else like that.

4. Ask Permission

If you are younger than 18 years old, always ask your parent or guardian if it is alright that you submit anything over the internet.

Safety Rules

1. Use the Right Tool

Make sure to find out what tool is best for the job and how to use it correctly. A wrench is not a hammer, and a knife can be dangerous if you try to use it as a screwdriver!

2. Ask for Help

If you need help lifting or holding something, using a tool you aren't comfortable with, or don't know what to do next, always ask for help!

3. Keep Safety in Mind

Always keep your safety and the safety of those around you as the highest priority when working on and riding bikes! Stay safe!

Hey Everyone,

We had a few technical difficulties, but our figurative neon “LIVE” sign is about light back up! 

 Streaming Tuesday July 7 at 11:00 a.m.

 

Youth Open Shop: Live is a program where youth can ask their bike related questions and get answers live on air. Every week we will present a short lesson as a topic of discussion, but you can ask any question you have about bikes and we will do our best to explain the answer.

This will be held as a Zoom webinar that will be linked in the announcement posts here on our website and on our instagram pages. We are also working on posting the recorded videos so if you aren’t able to view them live you can still participate and ask your questions through the comments or our questions form.

Our goal is to answer as many bicycle related questions as possible, and we need yours! Future topics are also needed, so even if you might not know the name of the part, or even what part is broken, do your best to describe it and we’ll get right on it! 

Thank you all so much for your interest and support of the Bicycle Collective, we hope you can join us. Have a great day, ride safe, and we’ll see you soon!

Updates to Shopping Protocols at the Salt Lake Bicycle Collective

As of Aug. 4th, 2021, SLCBC will be open for shopping and DIY hours Wed-Saturday 12-6pm (allowing 5 customers in at a time). Masks are required at all times when shopping with us.

When you arrive: please ring the bell and wait 6ft. (one bicycle length) from the door. A staff member will answer to assist you!

 

First Come First Serve for Bicycles, Parts, and Repair Stands

You no longer need an appointment to shop with us! We can allow up to 5 customers in at a time, so you may be required to briefly wait while another customer finishes shopping.

If you're shopping for parts, bring your bike, a photo of the part you need to replace, or a detailed list of the parts you need and our staff will help you find what will work for your bike.

We currently have 3 repair stands available for the public to work on their own bicycles. Bench time is $10/hr., and we have staff ready to answer your questions. Last call for new projects is 5pm.

You are required to properly wear a mask at all times while in the shop, no exceptions.

Note: If you have a referral for our Bikes for Goodwill program, please call us at (801) 328-2453

04 Aug. 2021: Due to nationwide supply-chain shortages of vital bicycle parts like tubes, tires, chains, cables, etc., many essential bike parts are out of stock. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Service

If you have questions about a mechanical issue with a bike you've recently purchased from us, please email us at  or call us at (801) 328-2453 and leave a voicemail. We fully refurbish every bike we sell, but sometimes we make a mistake. We'll be happy to help take care of any mechanical issues you have with your new bike within the first 30 days for no charge.

If your bike is your only means of transportation and you aren't able to afford repairs at a retail bike shop, please email us at  or call us at (801) 328-2453 and leave a voicemail. We have low- or no-cost options available for folks in need.

Donations: Tuesday - Saturday 12-6

NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY, BUT MORE THAN 5 BIKES AT ONE TIME MUST BE APPROVED AHEAD OF TIME. PLEASE CALL OUR SHOP AT 801-328-2453 BEFORE YOU COME TO DONATE.

We have limited storage space, and calling to verify a large donation of bicycles helps us prepare space.

PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE DONATIONS WHEN WE AREN’T OPEN.

What may seem like a convenient move for you creates a lot more work for us.

PLEASE DO YOUR BEST TO CLEAN YOUR DONATIONS OF VISIBLE DEBRIS BEFORE DONATING. WHY?

Donating extremely dirty bikes (covered in mud, dirt, grass or hay) hinders our processing abilities and puts the “dirty work” on us. Tip: you can clean your donation quickly with a garden hose or a household rag and some glass cleaner.

WE DO NOT DO PICK-UPS.

WE ACCEPT:

-All types of bikes (road, hybrid, mountain, bmx, tandem, etc)

-All sizes of bikes (adult, child)

-Bike parts of any kind

-Tools of any kind

-Accessories in good condition (helmets, bike pumps, lights, locks, racks, baskets)

-Gently used cycling clothing and shoes

-Old (clean) t-shirts and dish towels that we can turn into rags for our shop

WE DO NOT ACCEPT THE FOLLOWING ITEMS:

-Scooters

-Tag-a-Long bikes

-Anything motorized

-Exercise equipment or bike trainers

-Jogging strollers

-Car racks that are missing pieces (if we can’t sell it as a fully functioning rack, please do not donate it). We may refuse a car rack donation if we do not have the space to house it.

-Trailers that are missing hitches (if we can’t sell it as a fully functioning trailer, please do not donate it). We may refuse a trailer rack donation if we do not have the space to house it.

As a general guideline, we accept bicycles and bicycle related items. These items best serve our mission and the work we do.

GIVING TUESDAY 01Tuesday, May 5, 2020, is #GivingTuesday, a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. 

We at the Bicycle Collective in Utah are excited to get folks riding bikes as part of this day of giving. Cycling enables us to exercise while maintaining social distance, explore new areas, and enjoy the outdoors. It is good for our physical and mental health: boosting immune systems, heightening moods, and exposing us to sunshine. 

If there was ever a time for bikes, that time is now. The bike is a happiness machine bringing joy with each pedal. We can experience the joy of riding together even as we shelter at home apart.

How we're giving back this Tuesday

May is National Bike Month, and on Giving Tuesday Now, we are kicking off the month by giving back to children in our State. Our staff and volunteers are building bicycles for Utah kids whose families may not be able to purchase one due to financial and economic hardship in the wake of COVID-19. We invite you to sign up for a free bike from one of our locations or share this email with someone you know who needs a bike for their child or children. Once the bike is built, we will call the parent or guardian to set up a convenient time for pick up at our shop at the location you selected. (Note as of 7 May 2020.  We are going to temporarily disconnect the link for the sign up as we 430 requests we need to fill.)

Sign up here for a free kids bike from one of our locations.

Throughout our four locations in Utah--Ogden, Provo, Salt Lake City and St. George, our staff and volunteers are repairing and refurbishing bikes for kids. We will live stream our work and provide online instruction to repair a basic kid’s bike Please tune into each location’s Facebook Live Feed at the following times: 

10:00 AM  Tires and Tubes with the Ogden Staff 

11:00 AM   Hubs and Axles with the Salt Lake Staff   

12:00 PM   Bottom Brackets with the Provo Staff 

1:00   PM   Headsets with the St. George Staff

The Bicycle Collective is offering appointments so anyone can buy a bike, parts, or get help with that tricky mechanical problem.

30 March 2020

During these times where our lives are uprooted, we seek normalcy. This pandemic is hitting our most vulnerable the hardest. The Collective is eager to serve our customers and clients in this time of uncertainty and change. I’d like to introduce our new online- and by-appointment sales options! These measures will help us protect public health while allowing shop operations to continue. We want to be available to safely serve the community, especially with how crucial bikes are to maintaining all of our health and sanity. And as an effective form of transportation and mobility that naturally promotes social distancing.

BIKE SALES

Do you need a bike? Know someone who does? Starting today we are available to sell bikes by appointment. Here’s how easy it is:

  • When you get to the shop, please ring the doorbell. We’ll set aside 20 minutes to help fit the bike to you and answer any questions. Please be prompt so we can help folks in a timely manner. If there’s a line, please stand 6 feet away from the person in front of you.
  • Our staff will wear gloves when we handle the bikes, and we’ll be practicing thorough hand washing hygiene and washing before and after we help each customer. We recommend you do the same. We will sanitize the contact surfaces of each bike before and after your test ride.
  • When you decide to purchase a bike from us, we accept credit cards and Apple/Google Pay.. Contactless payments are much less susceptible to viral transmission! Once you’re paid up, you’re good to go and ride.

GIFT CARDS

If you want to help the Bicycle Collective during this challenging time and through this transition, but you don’t need to buy a bike, consider purchasing a gift card to use when we’re able to reopen. You’ll get an additional 10% off your purchase when you use that gift card as a thanks for supporting us through this tough time.  Additionally, please consider donating disinfectants such as Lysol Wipes.

DIY/OPEN SHOP

We value our DIY shop hours immensely, but it is currently unwise to host them. Soon we will be announcing a Service & Repairs department so we can help keep your bike rolling smoothly. We recognize that doesn’t do much to help folks who relied on our Work Trade programs to keep rolling, so we’re making Service Vouchers available to help cover the costs of repairs for those who can’t afford it, click the link here to pay it forward.

DONATIONS of BIKES & PARTS

At this time, we are not accepting donations.  While we know may have bikes they are no longer using or have outgrown and want to give it a second life, we do not yet have all the cleaning supplies needed to accept them.  Please hold onto your items for a few more weeks and stay tuned for an update.

PROGRAMMING

We know many of you are anxious to get back in the shop as a volunteer and/or a program participant.  We are constantly monitoring the situation, evaluating options, and developing new opportunities. Again, please stay tuned.

12 March 2020

As the Bicycle Collective is a shared-use cooperative space, we wanted to make sure we reached out to let you know how we, as an organization, are taking precautions against Coronavirus (COVID-19). We believe “precautions” is the correct word as we strongly believe in taking Coronavirus seriously while proactively maintaining the Bicycle Collective at all our locations as safe space for the community to work on their bikes, purchase used bikes and parts, and create a positive impact for others. Now is not the time to panic; it is the time to double down on building a healthy and resilient community for ALL. 

Below are some new Virus Free BC Rules we are putting in place to maintain a safe hygienic space for all of our shop users. This is not a substitute for broader precautions, and we ask that you stay informed and up to date about COVID-19 from reliable sources. It is tempting and easy to go down a deep dark Coronavirus rabbit hole on the internet, but the information on CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention) page and Utah’s Coronavirus page is updated regularly. 

As of 3/12/2020 there are three confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Utah.

NEW “VIRUS FREE BC” RULES

  1. Stay home and do not come to BC if you are feeling sick. Our staff has been given strict instructions to do the same and as many extra sick days as they need to accomplish this. 
  2. A.B.W. (Always Be Washing) Rule. When you arrive at BC, we will ask you to wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (the CDC way) before working on your bike and again after working on your bike. Our mechanics will be washing their hands between each customer they assist with bicycle repair. We will be asking our volunteers to do the same during Volunteer Night.  
  3. Clean tools, clean stands. Since we share surface areas (door handles, tools and stands) at BC, we ask that you again wash your hands before and after each time you work at a bench. We will wiping stands, benches and door handle down between customers.
  4. Gloves if you need them. BC will provide surgical gloves if you would like to use them when working on your bike. Feel free to bring your own if you have them. 
  5. Avoid touching your face directly with your bare hands. If you need to touch your face, use a sanitary method, like a clean cloth between your hand and face. It is virtually impossible not to touch your face, I realize. I have been trying. But you can touch it less often. Be aware of when you’ve just touched surfaces that might infect you (like doorknobs in busy places) and don’t touch your face until you’ve washed your hands. There are strategies — like keeping tissues handy and keeping your hands busy for touching your face less.
  6.  Keep your distance. It’s not easy, but try to stay at least six feet away from other people when you’re at work or in public. And don’t shake hands. Your hands are brutally efficient disease vectors.  Try an elbow bump or fist pump.
  7. No food or drinks on the shop floor. Since we are all trying to avoid touching our face area as much as possible, especially in community settings, we’re asking that you consume your food and beverages before or after you come to BC. We are going to suspend snacks during all programs. 
  8. Be Cool, Be Calm, Ride On. These are precautions, we are taking this seriously, and these are not reasons to panic. So keep riding and stay healthy because there has never been a better time to be on a bike. 

STIGMA AND RESILIENCE

Please read this article about the danger of stigma and discrimination that can occur when people associate a disease, such as COVID-19, with a population, ethnicity or nationality, even though not everyone in that population or from that region is specifically at risk for the disease. 

An informative article on Covid 19 virus with additional resources is here on Medium.

 

YOU CAN HELP

  1. Drop off your clean rags at BC (old washed t-shirts, towels…)
  2. Extra soap, disinfectant, surface cleaner, wipes, hand sanitizer (the anti-microbial, not the anti-bacterial type), surgical gloves, kleenex ? We’ll take em!
  3. Keep supporting all of your local nonprofits and businesses!

We are prepared to navigate through these challenging circumstances with your safety and confidence at Bicycle Collective at the forefront of everything we do. We will make our decisions with the health and well-beling of our volunteers, employees, customers and communities as our highest priority.

Thank you for your efforts and supporting these new rules in our shops in Salt Lake City, Ogden, Provo, and St. George.
