During DIY access scheduled hours Vélocity Co-op provides tools, cleaners, lubes, and a repair stand. No experience is required, and Vélocity staff and Véloteers are on hand to guide you if you have any questions.
Please note we are limited to 4 repair stands available on a first-come, first-served basis during DIY access hours. If you do not need a repair stand, we also have tire pumps and some basic tools available to use for free.
DIY bike repair access does not have a fee, though we ask for a donation of $15 an hour to help us continue to offer this service to our community. Most tune-ups only involving adjustments will take less than an hour if we’re not too busy.
Service-related parts (brake/shifter cables, brake pads, tire tubes, tires, etc.) are reasonably priced, and basic used components start at around $5. We also carry select new and used parts priced well below market value in most cases. Plus, Vélocity is often able to order a specific part if we do not have it in our inventory.
Doing it yourself is a great way learn a valuable new skill in a relaxed environment, prevent down-time by not having to leave your bicycle for service, and save a bunch of money!
