FCW is your friendly neighborhood bike shop.
Franklinton Cycle Works has a large selection of refurbished and “as-is” bikes available for sale. Looking for a kids bike, vintage Schwinn, or affordable commuter? There’s a good chance we have one in stock. We offer a wide range of brands including Trek, Specialized, Huffy, and Roadmaster, which means we have something for every budget.
Shopping at FCW supports our mission and our many charitable programs. We also offer a large selection of used and new parts including locks, light sets, tires and tubes, racks and bags, and so on. And if we don’t have something in stock, we'll point you to one of the many great local bike shops in Columbus that does carry the item you’re looking for.
FCW is also a great place to work on your bike! We have professional grade stands and tools that make adjustments and repairs a cinch. We also have all the oils, greases and cleaners on hand for your use. Become a member and take full advantage of our shop.
Franklinton Cycle Works is what’s known as a non-profit social enterprise. As a non-profit, we’re mission-driven and grounded in our values of empowerment and community building. As a social enterprise, we strive to be financially self-sustaining.
FCW works exclusively with used bicycles because we believe in environmental stewardship and the importance of restoration. Bikes, while fun and responsible transportation, require the use of non-renewable resources. The restoration of used bikes requires far fewer new materials and fosters the art of bringing new life to the forgotten and underappreciated.
