We don’t just know bikes, we live and breathe bikes!

Well, we mostly fix em, and of course, ride as much as possible.

Back Alley Bikes is a worker-owned bicycle shop in Carrboro, NC.

Repairing broken bikes is our main gig, and we service all makes and models of bicycles.

We ride and sell bicycles from Kona, Giant, Surly, Ibis, Turner, FBM, and Niner, as well as a wide variety of refurbished bicycles.  We also stock a careful selection of parts and accessories.

Since opening our doors in 2007 (in the back of a building at the end of an alley), we have worked tirelessly to salve the wounds of every broken bike and stoke the fires of every would be rider.
