The Bike Oven is an industrious space where we lend you the tools and give you the knowledge to wrench on your own bike. The space is run by volunteers.

We offer stand time and use of our tools for a suggested donation of $10 an hour, plus parts.

We are not a bike shop, please be patient.

Lack of funds is not an issue here. Please ask about our work-trade program.

You will be turned away if you disrupt the space.

Although we are not a bike store we do sell refurbished project bicycles that have been serviced by our Wrench volunteer staff.

In conjunction, we offer "A Build Your Own Bike" program, where you learn to assemble a bicycle from a bare frame!
