the bike lab

The next 2024 Bike Labs are July 6th, July 20th, and continuing biweekly Saturdays from 11:30 am to 2:30 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, assembling a bike, scooters, trikes, garden carts, walkers, wagons, perhaps ebikes, or riding safely in traffic and in cold, we can problem solve together. We have tools and parts, mostly used. If you have a bike, bring it. If you need a bike, we can help you fix one up for yourself. If you have a working or mostly-working bike or parts to donate, contact Ruthy to be sure we can take it. you can probably 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, including to help fix bikes, but your schedule doesn't allow, also contact Ruthy.

Call/text 413-341-2522 or contact Ruthy by e-mail

Need a bike? we have lots to be fixed up, or if I'm out of town, contact *Bikes For All* at

Have a bike to donate? our storage space is kind of maxed out, but we'll find room if it's an offer we can't refuse... like a working non dept store hybrid or mtn bike, tools, good components, 700c rear wheels, tires, pedals, seats, derailleurs, panniers, racks, lights, locks. thx :)
