Open Shop Hours

Open Shop is Every Saturday

1304 Bikes maintains workspace with access to tools and recycled parts freely accessible to the bicycle community. Additionally, during shop hours volunteers are on hand to advise and assist in the repair and maintenance of bicycles brought in by participants from the community. The Open Shop program exists both to provide access to parts and tools as well as bicycle repair and maintenance information to the participants. The expectation is that participants will not only be able to restore or maintain their bicycles, but that they will also gain the knowledge and skills required to perform their own repairs in the future.

Why 1304 Bikes?
We provide facilities and free assistance for folks to obtain, repair, and maintain bicycles. 1304 Bikes makes bicycling accessible to everyone by offering free instruction and parts, as well as a shop space to work in. We’ve also run a successful earn-a-bike program where individuals earned free bikes by volunteering at the shop. Please help keep Raleigh’s only nonprofit bicycle collective alive!

Soft Re-Opening

Come out and celebrate 1304′s re-opening this Saturday from 12 – 5 pm.

We will be open this and every Saturday for our Open Shop hours. Bring your bike, do some maintenance, or help someone else complete repairs on their bike.¬†This is the first time we’ve been able to have open shop hours in four years, so come take advantage of it.

If you weren’t involved with 1304 in the past, this is your chance to see what we’re all about, gain some experience from knowledgable cyclists, or just meet some new cycling friends.

Yes, Saturday NOT Sunday

Traditionally 1304 was open on Sundays, but at least for now, Saturdays make more sense. We don’ have many parts in stock since we’re just getting started back up, and with Flythe Cyclery right around the corner, we thought it would be a good idea to be open at the same time as Flythe, just in case anyone needed to buy some supplies.
