    Open Shop is a free, mostly volunteer-run service offered by the Bike Lab to students, community members and youth (with parental consent). At Open Shop, we’re committed to providing the tools and mechanical support you need to get your bike riding safer and better, within our means. At the Bike lab, we have a selection of salvaged and donated used parts to repair and modify bikes free of charge, as well as some basic parts for sale.

    During summer, Open Shop is often very busy, so visitors are asked to be patient in the space as we do our very best to assist you while fixing your bike.  Open Shop is a great way to meet new people and learn new things!

    If you’d like to volunteer to help us run Open Shop, or volunteer for any of our other programming, please fill out the volunteer intake form here!
