It’s the perfect time to be a new volunteer at the Wrench. Programming is in full swing, the days are getting longer, and yet the tempo of mid-winter remains. Come get acquainted with the space, the people, bike repair, and what being a volunteer at the Wrench is all about this Saturday, March 4th, 1 – 2pm.
At long last, the return of last year’s most popular workshop – Wheel Building! To better cover the topic, this workshop is being extended into a series. The first part is tailored to the very beginning steps of wheel building: theory, nomenclature, materials, measuring, and lacing. The second part covers vertical and horizontal truing, tensioning, dishing, stress relief, and finishing.
The cost for the workshop is $20, unless you bring your own wheel build materials – rim, spokes, and hub.
The first workshop runs from 12:30 to 2:00 on Saturday, February 25th.
The second workshop runs from 12:30 to 2:00* on Sunday, February 26th.
*End time subject to change, as needed

Join us at 1 PM for Coffee, Introductions, a Tour of the Shop and activities to get your hands dirty.
No experience or sign-up required. Just bring yourself.
At 2 PM when the orientation is over you’re welcome to stay and help us get the shop in order at Volunteer Shop. Everything wraps up at 4:30 PM.
Is your bike tired of the freeze-thaw cycle? Are your hubs making more noise than the horn and bell you normally honk and ding with? Has your bike’s colour scheme changed to a shade of bright orange-red? You might have a case of the winter blahs affecting your travel companion.
Find out how to dispel the Winter spectre that’s haunting your ride with our Winter Repair & Maintenance workshop. Join us at the WRENCH this Saturday at 12:30.
The WRENCH will be closed to the public on Thursday, December 8th through Sunday, December 11th as we prepare for the Cycle of Giving and move our entire operation to Rossbrook House. The regularly scheduled Open Shop for Thursday, December 15th is also canceled as we put the shop back together again.
Thanks for your patience and support! See you in 2017!
