Bicycles for All

Salem's Community Bicycle Shop

 

What is The Northwest Hub?

The Northwest Hub is a not for profit full service bicycle shop, bike reclamation program and training center.  Proceeds from our cycling center directly serve neighbors in need of transportation who "purchase" a bike through service to our community.    

Volunteers help us reclaim bicycles that would otherwise be scrapped or end up in the landfill.

Those same bicycles  mobilize neighbors so they can find jobs, make appointments, save time over walking, and enjoy the great outdoors.  

Long term volunteers get repair education, and can even learn fabrication techniques like machining and welding.  

If you dig what we do and want to support us, there are many things you can do:

1.  Come into our store and check us out.  You might consider investing in a new or used bike, all-weather clothing, accessories, or repairing your bike.  

2.  Volunteer your time with us - our volunteers are our most precious asset!

4.  Donate your bike - your donation is tax deductible!

5.  Make a tax deductible contribution.  

The Northwest Hub is a non-profit organization per IRS Code 432.56.215-B, section 501(c)(3). Our tax identification number is 32-0439729. Our group exemption number is 31954.

Products

The Northwest Hub provides affordable new and used bikes, lights, locks and other accessories, all-weather clothing, used bike parts, and amazing service, all at some of the most attractive prices in our region.  As a non-profit, we are able to turn your investment into transportation, training and jobs for disadvantaged Salem residents.        

The Hub is excited to be partnering with KHS Bicycles, Marin Bikes, and Kryptonite Locks for 2017-18.  As an official dealer, you may can order their products through us.  Kryptonite has come up with some amazing lights that we are now offering in store.  They are a great value, having the same quality as much more expensive lights.  For a limited time, for every Kryptonite light you buy, we provide a rechargeable bike light to a community member in need.

The Hub's used bikes are a central feature of our store.  The Hub has developed a special relationship with community donors and state resources to capture a stream of bicycles that would otherwise go to waste.  Many of these bikes are provided freely to our program participants in need of transportation - a few of the best are put through complete overhauls, and rigorous safety standards to be sold to the public.  Available at a cost far below their original retail price, they are an amazing value and contribute to our mission to provide "bicycles for all".  Come in to our store today, and see how affordable owning a great bike can be.

The Northwest Hub stocks an amazing array of extremely affordable used parts - from cranks, shifters, reflectors, wheels, forks and handlebars to used accessories like racks and fenders.  Parts vary from $1 to $8 generally.   

The Hub continues to explore various "up-cycling" projects to better utilize scrap bicycles and associated parts. Currently, The Northwest Hub is building trailers, attractive yard art, light fixtures and other bicycle-inspired functional sculptures for residential and business use.
