The Bike Oven endeavors to serve the community and improve the quality of urban life by promoting and facilitating the use of bicycles as an alternative to non-sustainable, air-polluting motor vehicle transportation.
Our Story and Some Basic Facts
The Bike Oven is a volunteer-run bicycle repair collective that started in a single car garage on Avenue 42 in Highland Park.
The Bike Oven moved, in August of 2007, to a new, better, and larger space. We are now at 3706 North Figueroa St. in Highland Park. Just 1/3 mile from the Heritage Square Gold Line Station, easy walking or riding distance to our front door. Through generous donations, we have expanded our facilities and parts supplies.
What We Do
The Bike Oven provides all the tools and supplies you will need to do most minor or major repair jobs. Volunteer mechanics are available to assist you if you need guidence or instruction. We have a large supply of used parts available for a small donation for replacing damaged parts, building up your bike, or doing that one speed conversion you’ve been planning. We are not a retail bicycle shop and do not make repairs or sell new parts and bicycles. Bring in your own bike, a project in the works, or just your vision of what you want to ride and we’ll help you get on the road.
If you need parts for your project or want to see some of the world’s most practicle and beautiful bicycles, visit our neighbor Flying Pigeon LA.
A donation of $5.00 per hour is requested (plus any parts, cash only).
Bike parking is available in front and across the street. There are nearby stores for food and drink, ‘La Abeja’ restaurant is next door.
