Welcome to Changing Gears

Changing Gears is a full-service nonprofit bike shop which offers professional repairs, new & used bikes/parts sales, job training, volunteer/community service opportunities, and DIY bike stand rentals.  Our mission is to provide high quality bicycle services which meet the needs of all visitors.

Founded in 2006, located in the City of Alameda on the decommissioned Alameda Naval Air Station (now Alameda Point), the shop helps recycle and reuse an average of 1000 bikes each year.  Thanks for visiting and for all the continued support!




Our Vision

The shop’s vision is to be a space where community engagement, political participation, economic opportunity and sustainable transportation come together for people of all ages and backgrounds.


Changing Gears is a place where all are welcome to learn and share their knowledge, skills, and love of bikes. Learn how to repair your bicycle, earn volunteer credits, and work along side professional mechanics.

The Shop

We're a full service repair shop that sells new/used bicycles and parts. All of our used items were generously donated by people like you. Our showroom bikes have a 60 day warranty. Come by and see our selection!
