bikerowave

Bikerowave is a not-for-profit DIY bike shop. Squeaky chain? Poor braking? Wobbly wheel? Come on by, Bikerowave is a DIY bicycle repair cooperative.

We provide space, tools and equipment in order to effectively teach people how to build, repair, and maintain their bicycles. We are a not-for-profit all volunteer organization. Our goal is to empower cyclists with the basic knowledge to maintain their steed, as well as enable them to more easily connect with the cycling community.

Operating as usual

Come on down and bag a bargain on a beach cruiser! The weather might not look like it now, but if you wait till it's warm and sunny, all these bikes might be gone!

We have dozens of pre-owned cruisers in stock, all checked over and verified good to go by our mechanics. Come check out our inventory and ride one away for next to nothing today, or tomorrow, or any day until the end of the year!

Dear patrons,

We are once again open! However, there are some changes to how we are running.

We are currently limited to curbside sales of: bikes, frames, new and used parts, accessories, tools

Unfortunately we cannot yet offer in store shopping, use of stands, or repair services.

Please wear a mask at all times while within the vicinity of Bikerowave and maintain at least 6' distance from volunteers and other patrons.

When you get to the counter, tell the volunteer what items you would like to purchase and they will be retrieved and bagged for you.

Please leave your ID and wear gloves when test riding a bicycle. Bikes are wiped down before and after test rides.

You may pay by cash, credit/debit, or Apple/Google Pay.
