The Bicycle Resource Center (BRC) is our flagship project. This is a hands-on bicycle workshop where Chainbreaker members who have gone through one of our training programs help others get a used bike and/or learn how to repair and tune it up. Since we aren’t a service-based organization, we don’t do repairs or tune-ups in the same way that most bike shops do. At Chainbreaker, we don’t do anything for anyone. If you have a bike that you need to fix or you need a bike to ride and you can’t afford to pay for it, stop by the shop and we will guide you through the process of becoming a member and getting a bike and/or fixing it up.
If you don’t have time to work on your own bike,or you don’t want to get your hands dirty, we suggest visiting a local bike shop, or looking through classified ads and at yard sales. We can give you recommendations of places to look and what to look for.
We try to keep our limited resources open to people who honestly can’t afford to buy a new or used bike somewhere else. So if you can afford to buy a new or used bike, please do so.
If you need a bike, please come by the Shop when we are open and talk to us in person. If you have donations of bicycles, parts, tools or accessories, please bring them by the shop when the project is open.
