Bike building blitz tonight

Just a reminder to our volunteers, we are going to have another wildly successful bike build tonight.

Tonight, the shop will be open only to our volunteers, we are going to keep building up our fleet of refurbished bikes to sell in the spring.  We have lots of bike stands available, and there will be people to help you if you haven’t done much repair before…and don’t be shy about skill levels, your two hands-on are two more hands for the Sauce!

If youre not sure you can put a bike together yourself, come in and learn. We had a few people come in last time and learn cabling, which is something you can learn in an hour and needs to be done to practically every bike we refurbish.

see you there!
