Our used bike builds include plenty of new parts manufactured in Asia and beyond, but most of what we spend breaking down and rebuilding our bikes goes to our mechanics. This means that your dollars are put directly back into the Northeast Mpls community.
Focusing on used also means we're able to put real performance on the floor for less money than a new bike.
A Recovery bike is a locally sourced sustainable product that reduces manufacturing energy when we make it and saves car miles when you ride it.
Custom Built Bicycles
We build hundreds of bikes from the ground up every year. This gives us the flexibility to create bikes specifically for Minneapolis riders. These are what you'll see if you visit our shops. While we specialize in building bicycles designed for transportation our process also allows us to build you a bike for exactly the way you want to ride for the same price as our floor bikes.
Stop in and test ride a few of our bikes that are ready to go and then start mixing and matching. We can swap out wheel sets, install new handlebars, or upgrade your seat. Or pick out a frame that you like and we'll build a custom bike around you without changing the price.
We do a lot to our used bikes before we put them out on the floor for sale. This Nishiki hybrid got new wheels, tires, and tubes. It got new handlebars and a crankset and pedals. And of course it got a new chain, seat, cables, and housing too. Replacing all of these elements means that the bike is almost entirely disassembled before being rebuilt from the ground up.
