Join us on Sunday, March 12th between 2-5 PM for our inaugural Women, Trans* & Femme Open Shop! Find out more at the Mellow Vélo Facebook page.
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
Please register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org as space is limited.
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.
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!
Even if you’ve not worked on bikes before, we need lots of help cleaning bikes, making cards to go with every donated bike, and prepping food for hungry volunteers.
To sign up, or find out more information about volunteering, please email email@example.com
We’re also trying to raise $15,000 so that we can continue to run some of our amazing youth programs throughout the year, like the Earn-a-Bike program which teaches newcomer girls the basics of bike repair. Visit our Donate page to find out how you can help!
The Cycle of Giving is less than a month away! In preparation of the big event, the WRENCH is selling raffle tickets to win this beautiful, brand new dutch bike, the Azor Omafiets. Visit us during Open Shop hours on Thursdays, 12:00 – 5:30 to purchase your ticket, or email Jon at firstname.lastname@example.org for a list of ticket sellers.
