A Better Cycle is a worker owned and collectively run used bicycle shop in sunny South East Portland, Oregon. We offer full repair services, custom builds, wheel building, and internal gear servicing.

Sustainable Qualification Summary
We take old bikes and make them work well again, keeping old resources rolling. We do not stock new bikes. We also sell used parts so people can fix there old bikes. We are a 100% owned collective. Every worker has an equal stake in the shop. We also provide free tool use and advice to the public, so people can work on their own bikes in our shop, room permitting.
