Different Spokes Grand Opening

Different Spokes Brampton Bike Hub

Different Spokes is a cooperative bike shop, operated by Bike Hub staff and volunteers. It is located in downtown Brampton at 8 Nelson St. W. (northwest corner of Nelson and Main, just south of the railway bridge, see Google Map).

We are about empowering people to ride bicycles for fun and transportation. How do we do it? See below.

We are a member organization. You must be a Bike Hub member to take advantage of Different Spokes services and participate in programs.

If you live in Caledon, check out the Caledon Bike Hub page for specific programs and events in your area.


Roll into Different Spokes where we offer do-it yourself bike repair services. We have tools, knowledge, and some parts, (used and new), to help you get your bike rolling smoothly. We are open for walk-ins and appointments for members.

Winter hours

Monday – 3:00 – 7:45pm
Tuesday – 3:00 – 7:45pm
Thursday – 3:00 – 7:45pm

Every Thursday at 6pm. Walk in or book a spot at one of our 4 workbenches!

Got a bike with issues outside the focus of the workshop? Book a separate 1.5hr DIY repair appointment

Bike Library

Different Spokes lends bikes generously donated by the community and then lovingly refurbished by Bike Hub mechanics and volunteers.

If you don’t have a bike, become a Bike Hub member. We will try to fit you with one from our bicycle library.

Have a bike to donate

We accept gently used bikes at Different Spokes, during operating hours.


Ride with confident cyclists. Want to find some sweet cycling trails, meet bike-minded neighbours, practice for that longer ride, or ride with others who regularly use bikes to get around? Sign up for Pedalwise. It’s free with Bike Hub membership!

Are you an experienced cyclist who wants to give back to your community by sharing your skills with others? .

A Year at Different Spokes – 2023

Thank you for riding with us, coasting on one of our library bikes, or wrenching with us during our first year of Different Spokes. It took a village to make this dream come to life, so thank you to the 159 volunteers who contributed over 6,000 hours to empower cycling in their community. Thanks to you, 278 library bikes were ridden, 3,446 bikes were repaired, and 82 rides took place.
