Want to learn how to fix bikes?

You’ve come to the right place!

The Bike Shop is open to all current students, faculty, and staff. It’s free to work on your own bike, even if you need help from one of our mechanics. If you’re unsure of how to fix a problem, we would be happy to teach you, free of charge.

We also offer a drop-off service at a rate of $10/hour + parts. Just bring in your bike and tell us what’s wrong with it. Our mechanics will fix your bike and call you when it’s ready.

*The Bike Shop does not buy or sell bikes. If you would like to purchase or sell a bike, please support one on Knoxville’s many friendly local bike shops.

We only sell the parts listed below. Buy your bigger accessories and major components from a local shop.

Bike Rentals

Over 50 commuter bikes per semester are rented through us. Approximately half of the bikes are assigned by a lottery system and the remaining bikes are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Semester long rentals are in high demand. If you are interested, look for announcements near the beginning of each semester about rental sign-up dates. However, rentals may become available throughout the semester, so check back with us at any time of the year.

Semester long rentals are $40 and include a helmet and a u-lock, as well as free maintenance at the Bike Shop.

The Bike Shop is inside the Outdoor Center, located in the lower level of TRECS.

If you would like to check equipment availability, call (865) 974-9749.
