Services Offered

Mechanical Tempest is a well-equipped, volunteer-run community bike-shop. We have most of the parts necessary to keep any two wheeler running.

With help and guidance from our trusty volunteer mechanics, anyone (even those without any mechanical experience) can do their own repairs and perform their own maintenance.

We carry a large stock of used parts so you can replace defective components easily.


We accept donations of bicycles and parts with the aim of getting used bikes back on the road and enabling the repair of bikes with as minimal an environmental impact as possible. We reuse as much as we can. We recycle metal and anything else we are able to. Please contact us with recycling opportunities!
