IMPORTANT NOTICE

We keep an inventory of all donations.

In the event that a donation is eventualy identified as stolen, the donor will be contacted immediately.

Ecological Characteristics

Reduction - Only quality used parts, you say?

Yes, we do our utmost to use the maximum amount of used parts possible.

The policy of the purchasing department is very strict on the purchase of parts, tools, lubricants, or any other product needed for operations: we stick to the minimum, preferring to wait for donations to resupply rather than buying new!

Reuse - A refurbished bike, you say?

Although the vast majority of our bikes are initially used and in bad condition, they all leave, without exception, the ReCycliste workshop with a complete tune-up, in A1 mechanical condition. Everything is well-adjusted, oiled and greased as needed. See our warranty in this regard.

Our inventory of used parts continues to grow, allowing a great reuse.

Recycling - What is done with what cannot be repaired?

If it is impossible to reuse the frame, we extract the parts. And when the parts are no longer usable as is, we extract their components.

Everything that is functional is cleaned, repaired and carefully graded for greater efficiency in our refurbishing operations.

Revalue - What do we do with our own recycling bin?

Bicycles, frames, non-repairable and surplus parts are in turn shipped to other eco-friendly organizations such as: Cycle Nord-Sud, SOS Vélo and community bike shops who can, in turn, miraculously recover valuable use from them.

Buying a winter bike ?

Yes, we build winter bikes. Adapted for the montreal winters with all of it's slush. Usually build with left over parts, that will need little maintenance during the winter.
