Frequently Asked Questions:

Does PBC sell bikes? - Yes!  At any given moment we have 10-20 adult bikes and 10-20 children's bikes ready for sale.  Prices range generally from $100-250 for adult bikes and $30-50 for children's bikes.  Our inventory is based on what gets donated and is quickly changing.

Do you sell parts? - Yes.  We have Utah County's largest collection of gently used parts.  Prices are generally half of what they sell for new.  We also stock budget-friendly new items such as tubes, grips, bar tape, cables, housing, locks and lights.

Will you fix my bike for me?  - Nope.  Never.  However, we will guide you through the process of fixing it yourself and let you use a professional-level bike shop bench and tools for only $10/hr.  If you want someone to fix your bike for you, we'd love to refer you to one of several for-profit bike shops in the area. 

Does PBC accept trade-ins? - Sorry, no. We've found that it incentivizes theft and we'd rather not risk giving value to stolen property.  Anyone who's had a bike stolen before will understand.

Can I come volunteer? - Always!  If it is your first time, you must attend a volunteer orientation first any Tuesday or Thursday at 6:30pm.  You may then help with us during our volunteer nights.  No prior notice is necessary for individuals or small groups.

Do you take donations? - YES!  We accept any bike and bike-related item, no matter the condition.  Your donations will be fixed up and turned into fully-refurbished bikes for members of the community to use.  What can't be fixed will be stripped for parts and/or recycled as scrap metal.  We also are always in need of shop rags, so please bring some old clothing or towels.

I need to do an Eagle Scout project.  Any ideas? - As a nonprofit, we always have community-building projects to tackle.  For info on current needs, contact the Provo director.

 

 

Volunteer Opportunities:

To volunteer at Provo Bicycle Collective, you must first attend a volunteer orientation any Tuesday or Thursday at 6:30pm.

Volunteers may do any of the following tasks:

  • - Repair donated bicycles for giveaway
  • - Strip parts from donated bicycles that cannot be repaired
  • - Organize donations
  • - Clean the shop
  • - Collect donations (bike donation drives are a great Eagle Scout Project!)
  • - Bring us old clothing, towels, paper towels, etc so we can keep bikes and hands clean!

All ages are welcome and no experience is necessary.   Volunteers who do not yet know about bicycle mechanics will be taught upon request.  We hope that you will volunteer regularly so that you can become a real help as you become familiar with the shop and bike mechanics.
