Affordable Bikes

-pricing without haggling, and cozening cheating, and defrauding

While we are all used to fixed prices in most of the marketplace, for used goods, more haggling is accepted. We adopted fixed, fair prices in order to support our values for honesty and equality, not because it would give us a chance to sell for higher profit if the customer did not haggle the price down to what it should be.

A given used bike may have cosmetic flaws and component replacements and/or upgrades. Bike condition, therefore, in combination with the availability of other used bikes in the marketplace, make determining the value an imprecise science, If we have overestimated the value of a bike, we will notice that it does not sell and lower the price after a season of watching it languish.

While all humans may all be equal before God, in our society, economic opportunities and security are not equally distributed. At Upcycles we are committed to providing good quality, reliable bikes even for our neighbors who have limited cash available. The paint may have some scratches, but the frames are lugged, good welded Schwinns, or the equivalent, with an alloy front wheel and equipped with headlight and taillight.

 

If you need a bike but have limited cash available, please stop in on weekday afternoons  from 1:00-3:00 to discuss how to get a bike that fits your budget!

Avoid COVID-19 by riding a bicycle!

"Oh-bike is a lifesaver! We're supposed to avoid the subways." 

Text from James' daughter in NYC

Riding a bike for your short commute or errands instead of riding in a shared enclosed vehicle (bus or Rapid or uber or taxi), avoids some of the highest risk environments for catching any disease, including the COVID-19.

It the Stay-at-Home order keeping you housebound to care for dependents? James is in this situation, and is saving (some of) his fitness and sanity by biking on a trainer. Upcycles has affordable used trainers and rollers to ride your bike in the sanctuary of your home.

Upcycles Bike Shop measures to provide a safe store environment

We are aware of the growing concern surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19) in Ohio. Bike shops are classified as an essential transportation business under the Ohio Department of Health's Stay-at-Home order, so our store will remain open to the public. We are working diligently to provide the products and services you need, while keeping our store environment as sanitary and safe as possible.

 

Our employees are required to wash their hands between each customer interaction and follow other heightened hygiene requirements.

  • Before bikes are returned to the customer, they are wiped with disinfectant.

  • Our tools are sanitized after every repair.

  • Our store counters and door handles will be continually disinfected throughout the day.
