The Bike Lab

The Bike Lab is on hold while Ruthy is away and will resume on Saturday, November 7th, 2020. If you're interested in hosting a bike lab before then, please let us know..

The Bike Lab is usually every Saturday, 11:30 am to 2 pm, at
12 Northern Ave, Northampton, MA

Anyone wanting to learn more and/or share what they know about basic bike maintenance and repairs, is welcome to stop by these free informal workshops. If you have questions about fixing flats, understanding gears, bike fit, brake adjustments, suspicious squeaks or creaks, or riding safely in traffic and in cold, we can come up with answers. If you have a bike, bring it. If you need a bike, we might have one you can fix up for yourself. If you have a mostly-functional bike to donate, you can drop it off during normal Bike Lab hours, or contact Ruthy to make other arrangements. If you want to come to Bike Lab for any reason but your schedule doesn't allow, contact me.

Bike tools are available for anyone who needs to tighten their cones or headset, break a chain, remove a freewheel, or whatever.

For more information call Ruthy at 413-586-8031 (land line, no texts), or contact Ruthy by e-mail
