Thank you for another great semester!

Hello everyone,
It has been another busy and productive semester for the shop. Lots of bikes have been fixed and many have found new homes. Thank you to our dedicated volunteer mechanics for your hard work as well as to all of you that stopped by!

We are going to be closed for the next THREE WEEKS (May 16th – at least June 8th). I’ll post our new summer schedule soon.

PS- Congratulations to all of the graduating seniors and best of luck to Laurence V as he moves on to grad school.

End-of-the-semester shop hours and SUMMER plans

Hey all,
I’ve been getting some questions about our end-of-semester and summer plans. Just to clarify, shop will be open this week (5/7) as well as during finals week (5/14). After that, we’ll be closed few a few weeks while we re-organize and rest after a busy semester. IMPORTANT: If you have a personal bike stored in the shop, you MUST PICK IT UP by May 14th. Otherwise, we will consider it abandoned and give it to another person.

We WILL have hours over the summer! We’re working on sorting out the day and time at the moment, but I’ll post them once they’re arranged.

Spring Riding Season: Maintenance Reminder

Spring riding season is here! Please take the time to check over your bike before heading out to enjoy the warmer temperatures coming this week. A few minutes of work can avoid serious injuries and major maintenance problems while you’re on the road.

No Shop This Week (3/19)…SPRING BREAK!

Hello everyone,
Just a reminder, we will be closed this week (3/19) for spring break. I hope everyone is enjoying the time off!

Just a reminder, if you haven’t ridden your bike since late fall / early winter, odds are pretty good that you need to add air to your tires and oil to your chain. Please don’t ride your bike if your tires are squishy or your chain is crusty / rusty. It can permanently damage your bike and put you at risk for a serious accident. We’ll be open next week and happy to teach you how to get your bike ready for the upcoming riding season.
