Earl’s Bike Shop Community Bench
It's BACK! The Earl's Bike Shop COMMUNITY BENCH! DIY bike repair. Learn* how to work on your bike and do basic bike repair. Increase your knowledge of your bicycle and save money down the road.
For only $10 per hour (not including parts) you can use a fully equipped bike work station. Included are rags, grease, chain lube, cleaners, and standard tools.
We can not lend out specialized tools, i.e. frame facing tools, headset press tools or bleed kits to name a few.
There are some repairs that just can’t be done on at the community bench. Check with us to see what those limitations are.
How do you use the bench you ask? The bench is open during store hours. Simply call or email and check to see if the space is available.
*We are not offering classes but can help point you in the right direction on simple repairs.
PROBLEM: Drat! Your brand-new bike got a flat tire.
Patching A Tube - Along with a spare tube, you should always carry a tube patch kit. Why? Because you might get a second flat and you don't want it to ruin your ride! This kit makes it easy to repair the tube, too. First, inflate it to find the hole (listen for the hiss). Mark the hole (tearing it slightly larger works well). Scuff the hole with the sandpaper in the kit. Apply glue (unless your kit uses glueless patches; it'll says so on the cover). Wait 5 minutes for the glue to dry. Peel the foil off the patch and apply it. Don't miss the hole! Before you reinstall the tube, check the tire and get that nasty sharp object out so you don't get a third flat (argh!).
