The Community Workshop

Our workshop is a place where volunteers and members can come and learn to repair and maintain their bicycles. We have complete refurbished bicycles for sale, along with a stock of used parts and bikes available to everyone. We also gladly accept donations of unwanted bicycles and parts in any condition.

We are located at 98 Colvin Avenue in Buffalo, NY.

We are currently without open shop hours:

Unfortunately due to a staffing shortage, we cannot keep the shop open at this time. We hope to be back open by the end of July. Thank you for your understanding.

Yes! We are happy to accept donations of any bikes and parts that are no longer wanted. Donations can be dropped off at the workshop during our open hours with no need to call ahead. We will gladly provide you with a tax receipt. We are currently unable to pick up donations. 

No! Everyone is welcome to visit the shop for retail purchases and to book service repair appointments. To use our bike stands for DIY bike repair, if you are not a member of GObike, you can purchase a single-use day pass for $10. If you plan to come back or are interested in supporting our work, we recommend a year-long membership, which can be purchased online or at the workshop.

Good question! You can repair your own bike or build a bike from our supply. We provide all the tools, lubricants, and knowledge you’ll need to do so. We have a team of experienced bicycle mechanics to help you along the way. You can also shop our inventory of refurbished bicycles and attend classes on bike maintenance and road safety.

Sort of. We absolutely welcome your help, but in keeping with our health and safety protocols, we don’t want too many people in the shop at one time. However, if you are interested in volunteering at the shop, please get in touch with our workshop staff at


We have a selection of used bikes of all types and sizes that have been refurbished by our staff. The stock changes weekly. The shop also sells “as is” bikes that you can work on yourself as well as used parts to help you with your projects. We stock a selection of new items including tubes, tires, cables, lights, locks, bells, fenders, and baskets.
