It’s a brand new year, so why not shake off those 2016 problems at Open Shop this Thursday, January 12th, 12:00-5:30? If you’re new to the WRENCH and would like to volunteer, kick off 2017 by joining our Volunteer Orientation on Saturday, January 14th at 1:00pm.
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!
What is a coaster brake? It’s that rear wheel brake that’s built into the hub, needing only to pedal backward half a crank turn to engage. Many older cruisers have them and most kids’ bikes have them, and we’re about to dive in on a pile of kids bikes at the Cycle of Giving next month.
Come on down to the WRENCH this Saturday and we’ll all learn together how to adjust, disassemble, clean, and re-assemble coaster brakes.
The workshop runs from 12:30 pm until 2:00, followed by Volunteer Shop.
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.
Workshop – Saturday October 29th
12:30 PM to 2:00 PM
Learn what makes your hubs tick, snap, crackle, and jump-jive, plus all the ins and outs and dos and don’ts about hub bearings.
We’ll have hot drinks ready.
If you’d like to stick around and help out, join us for volunteer shop after the session.
The workshop is free, but please register beforehand.
