Welcome to Good Karma Bikes. We’re glad you’re here.
At Good Karma Bikes, we empower people and build community through bikes. Looking to purchase or service a bike? Donate a bike? Volunteer? You’ve come to the right place.
Who we are
Good Karma Bikes is a full-service, second-hand bike shop open to the public. We have been voted Silicon Valley’s Best Bike Shop six years in a row. We pride ourselves on service quality second to none. We have the best prices in town – in fact, our prices are about in the 50th percentile in the United States
We are also a non-profit. Each year, we receive thousands of used bicycles through community donation and impound. Our volunteers refurbish them, then they are up-cycled and re-deployed to those in-need.
What we offer
We provide safe and reliable bicycle transportation, repair services, and training through Park Tool School. We also offer free training nights that feed our volunteer program. We refurbish, sell, and grant bicycles at our retail shop. For every bike sold, we provide one bike or service at no charge for those in need.
What we stand for
We say that we are not about bikes. We are about people. We are about affordable transportation, health, and wellness. On average, we grant 1.5 bicycles per day to children and adults in need. In fact, all single-speed, coaster-brake style kids bikes are free.
Since our founding our community financial assistance is over $2.1M in free labor, parts and bicycles.

This is a great non profit with an awesome friendly staff and volunteers. I’m glad they’re still going strong and donating bicycles they fix.
This place does good work. The people are nice. And they have some very good deal on both new and used bikes. And it’s a good cause!
We had such a great experience at GKB! Their mission is fantastic, their employees are knowledgeable and friendly, and they have a great selection of new and used bikes. We left with two bikes, and are very happy customers!
San Jose is lucky to have this bike shop! Expert, kind, and straightforward service. I brought my old bike here, and they fixed her up nicely. She rides like a brand new bike again and looks great! They also take the time to explain things to you about your bike and answer any of your questions.
This is the best place to get your bike repaired and to look around. I’ve been to all the local shops trying to get my old bike repaired. Always end up with those other shops trying to sell me a new bike. Good Karma understood what I was looking to do and advised me to just keep my bike running. They were faster, cheaper than other places nearby.
Great place to get your bicycle fixed or tuned up. Prices are the most reasonable I have ever seen and the service is excellent. Prices of the actual bicycles for sale are also great especially if you are still a student. Best part is that it’s a non-profit organization so the money you spend will ultimately do some good for someone.
An amazing organization that is so much more than just a ‘bike shop’ – Good Karma’s commitment and care for helping the community is nothing like I’ve ever seen before. The team is friendly and welcoming, whether you’re an avid biker and know everything there is to know OR you know nothing about bikes (like me), they will help you feel comfortable and answer all your questions. Good Karma, thank you for all you do!
I donated one of my excess bikes to them because I believe in their mission. The place is really nicely set up, and the prices on some of their bikes for sale are really good. I found their employees to be nice and very informative.
GREAT service and at an excellent price. My bike had been in storage for several years, and it was a busted, rusted mess. The team at Good Karma went above and beyond by replacing two tires, oiling the chain and giving my “baby” a detailed overall cleaning. Thanks Good Karma … I’m ready to roll.
