Handlebar Hours – Spring 2014!!

Hello bikers!! Handlebar hours for the Spring 2014 semester have been announced! We will be open Mondays and Thursdays from 4 to 6pm! Whether kept inside or outside, the long winter was probably hard on your bike. Snow, salt, and a lack of riding can cause bikes to rust, wear, and become stiff. The tires will probably have lost a good bit of air, and there might be a layer of grime to be wiped away to make your bike look absolutely pristine. Even if Continue reading →

A New Kind of Riding

I found a place where I was comfortable, but it was different than what I’m Continue reading →

The Ghost Rider strikes again! The Guest Blogger this week sets out to unravel the truth in a violent act of bike mangling! ———————————————————————————————————————————————– Just what on earth happened here?  Clearly thieves used a hacksaw and later a bolt cutter on the seat tube and stays.  They didn’t want the saddle……  Was there a gold nugget stuck in the bike’s seat tube?  A hidden stash of blood diamonds?  What do they need that piece of seat tube for – rolling Danish pastries?  If you figure Continue reading →

She trembles at the thought of her frame corroding from the street salt, her chain seizing up due to rust, and her brake and derailleur cables freezing.

If you have a bike that is afraid of the snow, make sure to bring it by the Center for Sustainability Education (Kaufman 190) so that it can be Continue reading →
