We are an independent, not-for-profit, bike project based in Heeley, Sheffield.
You can visit us like a regular bike shop and workshop. As well as recycling your donated bikes we also carry out customer servicing and repairs and stock new and second-hand parts. You could definitely chat with us about anything to do with bikes, our small but knowledgeable team of staff are real aficionados and we all ride bikes as much as we can in our spare time.
All of our mechanics are fully-qualified to either Cytech level 2 or 3, so you can be sure that when you bring your bike into us for servicing or repair we will provide you with a professional service at a competitive price.
Three days a week, when you visit our workshop you’ll see that we work with young people who may be struggling in mainstream education, engaging them in bike mechanics to give them skills for the future.
We also deliver Dr. Bike sessions across the city, maintenance classes and our DIY Bike Kitchen where we’ll help you to fix your own bike with our tools.
ReCycle Bikes is a Heeley Development Trust community business and the income we generate is invested back into our local community. Follow this link to find out more about the charity – The Heeley Development Trust.
What goes in to our recycled bikes?
Our reconditioned bikes are as good as new…
Here at ReCycle Bikes we make sure that all of the bikes that we recondition for sale in our shop are completely stripped down to the frame and rebuilt.
When you buy a reconditioned bike from us, you can be sure that every part of the bike, from the bottom bracket to the wheel hubs, has been serviced by our skilled mechanics. This is equivalent to a full service which would normally cost £95.
Any worn parts are replaced with new or ‘as new’ parts and the bikes are test-ridden to ensure that the bikes are in full-working condition before they’re listed for sale.
