Grab a fork.
And feed your brain.

Open Shop is a bike commuter's best friend. Bring in your bike and use one of our six complete work stations and our large selection of tools to work on it. We have volunteer mechanics and books to help you along in your repairs. Best of all, Open Shop is totally free! You don't have to pay for your time on the stands or the help you may receive from a volunteer mechanic. Open Shop is a charitable program designed to help the under-resourced overcome transportation barriers and get them where they need to go. 

Hopefully our extensive collection of used parts and new parts will help you complete your repair. Since our inventory of used parts depends entirely on donations, we may need to refer you to one of Columbus’ many great traditional retail bicycle shops if we can’t fix your bike together here.  

Our Open Shop sessions are designed primarily for adult commuters, requiring children under the age of 16 to be accompanied by an adult. For youth education, check out our youth programs.

Open Shop is primarily run by volunteers, so if you like what’s happening at FCW, consider volunteering!
