Want to work on your own bike, but need tools and space to do it? Rent-a-bench is $5/hr for the public and free for active volunteers. Bike Library Volunteers will only perform repairs on Checkout bikes not rent-a-bench participants. However, depending on volunteers staffed, we can answer questions. We highly recommend going to ParkTool.com and reading up on or watching a video on the repair you want to make. Or just come in. It might be a simple fix.
Rent-a-Bench is great for doing maintenance on your bike before it's too late and you need to replace something. Even if you've never lubed your chain, pumped up the tires, or adjusted your brakes, these are things you can do! An increase in knowledge about how your bike works translates to more confident riding too!
Do you just want to practice fixing a flat? Stop in during Rent a Bench as ask someone to walk through the steps with ya!
