Used Bikes Vancouver by Ride on Again
Originally Vancouver’s only BMX specific store. They now service all makes and models of bikes and selling many types of bike ranging from single speeds, fixed gears, vast selection of entry level road bikes, lots of choices of steel touring/CX bikes, hybrids, comfort bikes and anything in between. Their focus has been put on a strong community relationship between the rider and the rider’s experience within the bicycle repair shop.
The bikes that get donated normally end up in 3 groups:
If the bike can be fixed up to get back on the road, they will give it a full tune up, by professional bike mechanics, using either new or used parts. These are then sold in their store as very reasonably priced up-cycled used bikes.
if the bike is beyond repair, they ensure that it gets stripped down as efficiently as possible, usable parts are kept to mend other bikes, the remaining parts are separated into Steel, Aluminum, Rubber, Hard Plastic to be properly recycled.

They work with a number of local charities and organizations to get the bikes into the hands of the people that need them most.
