William's story is a good reminder that buying bikes via Gumtree comes with a risk. As he points out, our bikes come with a 6-month warranty and a first service for free.
Drop by on Saturday 10-2, or Mon through Wedn 10-5, to our WheelShow in Alexandria (84 Burrows Rd) to check out our range of redeployed, high-quality, branded mountain, road, and hybrid bikes for between $150 and $350.
And we are always there to take responsibility....
Today we are at Badlam Bay Community Garden in Hunters Hill to check and tune your bike till 4pm at no cost. Our first visitor was Anthony Roberts NSW Minister for planning and public places who bought this lovely step through bike.
If you have a bike you no longer need or want to be checked by Carlos our mechanic you will find us in the community garden...
Book Your Bike In For A Service
We are now open to servicing a number of bikes, whether purchased through Revolve ReCYCLING or elsewhere. Member fee is a discounted servicing option available for bikes purchased through our store.
We service commuter, hybrid, mountain, road, single-speed, and BMX bikes. We can do mechanical repairs on e-bikes, but not electrical or software repairs.
We have a wide array of second-hand parts we can also use on your bike, should any parts need replacing. We will however purchase wearable components such as chains, cassettes, and cables new; and fit them to your bike where necessary.
Book your 6-month service for $60 (member fee) or $90 (non-member fee) here https://revolverecycling.net/our-services/...
Three simple steps to have your old or unwanted bike recycled or redeployed:

3. We come get it.
Or, if you like, drop it off at any 99 Bikes shop in the Sydney metro area or in our workshop in Alexandria - 84 Burrows Rd...
Here are Matt, Jack, Anthony and David who are volunteers for Revolve ReCYCLING. On Monday nights, they repair kids’ bikes 🚲 for us to give for free to disadvantaged kids and refugees kids, including from 🇺🇦. Very nice blokes doing good with their hands, skills and time.
It’s wonderful to see the joy these bikes bring to kids when we deliver them, including our February deliveries in Redfern, Central West NSW and outback Queensland.
We’re close to establishing part of the organisation as a formal charity so we can extend this charitable work. Some great folks joining its Board.
Why not set some awesome goal like 10,000 free kids’ bikes per year?...
This is Eddie who donated an old bike to support Revolve Recycling’s mission. He’s a fitness professional in western Sydney and a former professional rugby 🏉 league player. Eddie has fond memories of “spending the whole day on our bikes” growing up in South Auckland and hopes other kids have that same opportunity for fun and freedom. You can help too by donating your unused rides. Thanks Eddie!...
Did you know that Sydney’s 100 bike shops could be sending up to 50 tonnes per year of used bike tyres and tubes to the tip?
They know it - and they don’t want to do it. So, together with Tyrecycle and the shops, Revolve Recycling has come up with a new solution. We will be collecting the material from participating shops - together with metal and e-waste - and having the tyres and tubes turned into new products like playground padding and road building materials.
It’s part of our new ZERO WASTE service for Sydney’s bike shops - as well as for the used tyres and tubes we collect with the bikes we get from households and Councils. There’s some 10,000 tonnes of material or 14 million tyre and tube units out there waiting on a new life - including this container at our Alexandria WheelShop.

Drew from 99 Bikes dropped off 15 bikes at our workshop today.
If you have a bike you no longer need and can't bring it to Alexandria you can drop it off at your nearest 99 Bikes shop in NSW. 99 Bikes has kindly agreed to be part of our bike drop-off network and help us to give new life to these old bikes.
Anybody else who wants to join our bike drop-off network please get in contact with our GM at email@example.com or 0459 999 110...
