Free Self-Serve Bike Repair

Roll on in and check out Saluki Spokes, located in the Student Center Craft Shop, courtesy of the 2008 Student Affairs Innovation Awards. Saluki Spokes has basic materials and tools so that you can fix your own bike and get back on the road. Tools are free to use at the Craft Shop. The Student Center also has an exterior self-service fix-it station located on the South entry of the building.

Paid Basic Bike Services

Saluki Spokes also has paid services with a technician throughout the week to help with basic repairs if you do not know how to fix your own bike. Drop your bike off and fill out a work order during Craft Shop hours and our tech will call you when your bike is repaired.

Basic repairs include - airing up tires, fixing flat tires, replacing tubes, adjusting breaks, handlebars, and seats. We do not fix more complex issues. 

Please visit the bike shops in town for assistance with these issues.
