While most of the costs of the Shifting Gears program are provided through in-kind donation of services, there are hard costs associated with the program when it comes to parts needed to refurbish the bikes. Bikes donated are not always in top condition. In fact, many bikes are stripped down for parts to help rebuild and refurbish other bikes. Even after this stripping process, there are certain parts that are critical and just not available: cables, cable housing, tubes, tires and safety reflectors are among the most common needs. Many of these items are related not only to functionality but to safety as well.

Suggested Donations:

  • Donation $1 - replace a tube
  • Donate $5 -  replace a tire
  • Donate $10 - replace chain, cables and cable housing
  • Donate $25 - replace wheels
  • Donate $50 - refurbish a kid bike
  • Donate $100 - refurbish an adult bike
