Who we are

DSC_0242The Laurel Cyclery is a bicycle repair shop, retail store, and social enterprise in the Laurel District of East Oakland and launched in August 2014. We sell quality new and used bikes, new bike parts, accessories, specialty apparel, books, and maps to residents of Oakland’s Upper Fruitvale and Lower Hills Districts.

Owner Jason Wallach combines 25 years as a professionally trained mechanic with keen management experience to ensure a strong, sustainable future for the shop. From 2011 to 2014 Jason ran a successful weekly pop-up bicycle repair clinic in Temescal. He has contributed hundreds of volunteer hours to community-based events that put quality refurbished bikes in the hands of Bay Area youth. The Laurel Cyclery adds to Jason’s existing reputation as a quality mechanic and cycling community leader. Since August 2014, the shop has become the go-to bike shop for the diverse communities that make East Oakland what it is.
