In-Store Credit and Exchange Policy

If you have an issue with anything purchased from the ASUW Bike Shop, please bring it in promptly so we may help you. We will only provide direct exchanges or in-store credit on a case-by-case basis for items returned with original receipt within 30 days of purchase. We will not accept any merchandise that appears used. Labor fees and flat tubes may not be refunded or exchanged.

Customers doing their own installation of parts will not receive a refund or exchange unless there was a manufacturer defect. If your bike was fully serviced by one of our mechanics and is having issues post-service, please bring it by and we will do our best to help you.

All refunds and exchanges must be done in person by management only. If you are unsure whether this policy applies to your case or have any concerns, please give us a call at (206) 543.2742 or email asuwbkbm@uw.edu or asuwbike@uw.edu to reach one of our managers.

This window has closed.

Applications to be a Bike Shop Mechanic are now open for this upcoming academic year!

If you are a student next year and have experience in our shop, bike shops in general, or a passion for cycling, bikes and of course learning, we strongly encourage you to apply!

Previous bicycle repair experience is recommended but not required. In short, our bike mechanics are expected to have strong customer service skills, be able to multitask repairs, know the services and events offered by the shop and have the communications skills to teach customers how to repair their own bikes.

Mechanics must be able to work a minimum of 5 hrs/wk; however, hours will flux depending on availability each quarter.

Important Bike Storage Policy Announcement

The ASUW Bike Shop is a valuable resource intended for ALL UW students, staff and faculty. Anyone is welcome and encouraged to use our shop space and services; however, we are not designed to be permanent bike storage. 

With that said, customers will be allotted 10 business days to pick up their serviced bike. From the 11th business day on customers will be charged an additional $4 per day until the bike is picked up from the shop. We do not have the spatial capacity to hold on to customer bikes for extended periods of time. This bike storage fee is necessary to best serve ALL of our customers.

We will begin implementing this policy immediately; we hope you will respect this policy.
