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.

Survived another semester!

Hey all,
Now that the semester is over, we’re going to be closed for the next two weeks. We need a bit of time to take inventory, clean shop, and rest after another very busy semester. Thanks to everyone that came and volunteered! It’s great to see returning folks as well as new faces.

We’re working on scheduling new summer hours. At the moment, I’m waiting on a couple of summer classes to finalize their schedules before discussing scheduling with our regular mechanics. Once everyone’s schedule has been finalized, we’ll post the new hours. Rest assured, we will be open consistently throughout the summer.

Finally, a big congratulations to all the graduating seniors and grad students (our own Matt Lammens has finished!). Please make sure to take some time to enjoy yourselves and celebrate all of your accomplishments. We’ll miss seeing you around and you’re always welcome to come back.
