Shop CANCELLED July 29th!

Hey everyone,
Shop hours will be CANCELLED next Tuesday (July 29th) due to building maintenance taking place in the Union. We will likely have to cancel again before the semester starts so please double check either here or Facebook (same info both locations) for closure information. We’ll try to give at least 24 hours notice on closures.

I know it’s flat tire season right now so if anyone is dealing with this issue please check out the link below for a handy guide to repairing flats. BE CAREFUL riding around all the construction areas that seem to be ubiquitous at this time of the year. Spare inner tubes and patches can be bought online (try amazon or www.nashbar.com) and pretty much anyone that rides a bike should invest in an air pump (even just a small hand pump can help!).

Best,

Summer Term II Hours

Hello all,
Our summer term (July 7th- Aug 7th) hours will be Tuesdays 3pm-5pm. The SBU Union closes early during the summer so we’ve had to adjust our hours accordingly.

FYI I’ve been advised that there will be some maintenance work taking place during the upcoming month in the union basement. We may have to cancel shop during these repairs. Please check either here or Facebook for cancellations before coming to the shop. I’ll post any cancellations as soon as I find out about them.

No new bikes for a few weeks

Hello all,
Due to space limitations will not have any new bikes available for a few weeks. For those of you working on projects, please try to make it down to the shop to start wrapping things up. We’re really in a space crunch at the moment. We’re also going to have to get strict about enforcing the two week rule for bike maintenance. We just don’t have the space to hold onto bikes for extended periods.

Unauthorized Bike Locked In Shop

20140603_172141

Please remove by the start of shop next Tuesday (6/10)

Hello all,
Someone has locked a blue bike up in our shop using a personal cable lock without our permission. This is unacceptable. It is a fire hazard. It also blocked access to the rest of the bikes forcing us to repeatedly lift and maneuver around it today. If the bike is not removed by the start of shop (3pm) next Tuesday (6/10), the lock will be cut and the bike will be confiscated.
