Hours of Operation
The Bike Centre is now open! For the Fall, we're open Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday, 11:30am-7pm.
We are closed at UW holidays and our last day of business this term is Nov. 28th.
Where is the Bike Centre
The Bike Centre is in the northwest corner of the Student Life Centre. You can get to us from the outside by our door in that corner of the building (on the Ring Road side of the SLC loading docks) or from inside the SLC by walking down the hallway past the CIBC and the Apple II hair stylists in the basement. Our room number is SLC 0101.
How the Bike Centre Works
We charge $1/hr for use of the tools and $1 if you use any of the fluids. Both charges are flat rate.
We have an assortment of wrenches, allen/hex keys, headset and cone wrenches and the tools required for brake and bottom bracket adjustment or overhaul. What we don't have are tools that are specific to disc brakes, suspension fork or shock, frame straightening, pressing in headset cups, or for weird/cutting-edge/high-end parts.
The fluids available are oil (suitable for your chain), lube (the thick gooey stuff to be used on bearings), and citrus-based solvent (for helping get rid of the old gooey stuff).
