Kickstand Community Bike Shop
Kickstand is Knoxville’s bike collective. It is an all volunteer organization dedicated to helping everyone with their bicycle-related needs. The Kickstand mission is to make bicycling accessible to everyone regardless of income or skill level. They meet weekly to repair bikes and to teach bike repair skills as they refurbish donated bikes. Kickstand also has a Build A Bike volunteer program where individuals can earn a bicycle.
Bike Elf’s programs are based on donations of GENTLY used bicycles in order that we can deliver the highest possible quality refurbished bicycle to children and young adults. We require that our recipients earn their bike and therefore want to offer them a “like new” bicycle product. Bike Elf is excited to partner with, promote and help out Kickstand.
In 2015, Bike Elf delivered Kickstand over 60 bicycles that were beyond our capability to repair or refurbish. Kickstand rehabs these bicycles for their own programs, or cannibalizes them for parts.
