Bicycle Donations

Not currently accepting any bikes

All bike donations are on hold until later this spring. The shop is full and we need to focus on refurbishing the bikes we have.

If you have a particularly high-value bike you think we’d really want, please send us a photo.

Some bikes we never take

Sharing Wheels does not accept bikes such as:

  • “Department store bike” brands like Magna, Roadmaster, Huffy, Hyper. These have cheap parts and aren’t worth fixing if broken. We will take these bike if they are in like-new condition.
  • Broken or bent frames (unless quality parts are worth removing)
  • Rusty bikes that have been stored outside (a little rust is OK)

If your bike is junk, take it to the junk yard: Braven Metals near Lake Stevens or a Snohomish County Transfer Station.
