We sell used bicycles to help fund our programs. As we do not have any dealer relationships, our selection of bicycles comes from your donations. Bicycles have been built by current WEAB Staff, Volunteers and participants. After refurbishing the bikes we offer them at low costs, so that people of all economic backgrounds have access to transportation.
Where do you get all of these bicycles? Can I sell or trade my old bike here?
WEAB DOES NOT buy or trades for other peoples’ bicycles. All the bicycles we use for programming or resale are donated. Please bring your unwanted bicycles, parts, and accessories to WEAB, WooRides, or one of the number of bike shops in the Worcester area that accepts donations on our behalf.

- All bicycles have been either donated by someone like yourself, a local bicycle shop, ore reclaimed from a local recycling center.
- Some wheel sizes are rarer than others and likely see less of these for sale. When we do have these for sale we’ll likely chat with you to make sure you know about the size of wheels your chosen bike has.
- We offer a general repair warranty that lasts for 30 days after purchase. Of course warranty doesn’t really cover things like flat tires or self-inflicted damages (accidents, etc).
- We accept cash, check, and major credit card
- We’ll issue you a paper receipt that acts as a proof of purchase. You can use this in a case of needing warranty repairs or if you have other inquiries regarding the sale.
We highly encourage you to come in during open shop and tool on your own bicycle, but if you do not have the patience, or time, we offer bike tuneups. They range on price, depending on labor, and parts.
