New Paint!

The shop finally got around to getting rid of some of the white walls this week. The purple, blue and green came out lookin purty cool. Everyone worked pretty gosh darn hard (myself excluded.)

Luckily, I fulfilled my usefulness by bring my winning personality (and camera.)

The whole thing took 2 days to do, and the results were better for it.

Veronica rockin the blue detailing.

The shop was temporarily pretty messy during the process... Further hampered by my sloppiness while wrenching.

The final product though was all worth it. And the boards look a lot more interesting now.

Nice color combos.

And clean work space! (For now.)

Veronica and Basie rocked it! These are some cool volunteers.

Happy New Year!

Its a new year and a new academic quarter.
New volunteers are always encouraged.
Our weekly meetings are still at the same time, same place.
Wednesdays @ 2pm.

Keep on pedaling!
"Roadcycling for me is not about suffering. It is about this emotional connection. Somehow the feel of being on the bike, the sensation of speed, and even the pain in my legs become associated with the reward of seeing an affecting landscape. Once it forms, the association is difficult to break, and it makes cycling addictive - apparently not just for me. Some of my riding partners are experienced racers and randonneurs, and when I listen to them describe rides I notice that they rarely speak of difficulty or pain. Words such as "epic" and "sufferfest" are simply not in their vocabulary. It's not because they don't feel pain and exhaustion, but because they do not consider these sensations to be the point. It's about fulfillment through a visceral connection with one's surroundings. The rest is not important."

Thank you to Vlad and Leo who worked on these murals all summer! They look fantastic


We're on facebook

Work Party !

A successful work party! Everything is clean and organized!

Brought some life into the shop with plants.

We silk screened the bike shop's logo on T's, hoodies, and even some boxer briefs, so volunteers can rep TEBS.

Muscles were used to bend back these giant cutters into working condition.

We ordered some fenders to sell! For now, we will start out with only 8 in stock and see what the demand is like. Look for them soon!

How to Lock Up Your Bike

I dont recommend that you epoxy a ball bearing into your stem bolt (because you wouldnt be able to adjust it if the need arises), but everything else is legit.

Mayor of of the City of Vilnius in Libya is sick of people parking their cars in the bike lane. To publicly display his sentiment he decided to run over an illegally parked Mercedes Benz in a TANK. Wowza

Second-Hand Rose and Back

Good ride this weekend before the heavy cloud cover rolled in. Apparently this blog is just our ride report... Pictures!

Our destination! Lots of interesting old things to found and bought for the right price. Apparently Dwayne the satanic dentist shops here for all the black houses in Olympia.

Start of the ride with past and future coordinators!

 Josh's bike gave him lots of trouble, but we don't leave no one behind. I'll be sure to be more equipped in future rides.

One last shot before heading home. Good lookin', boys.

26" to 65Ob Conversion

I've read a fair amount about converting old road frames to 65Ob wheels with the aid of long reach caliper brakes, but I never heard of going from 26" to 65Ob. Take a look at the Velo Orange blog, where they have a post about the process. This creates a lot of potential for all those old chomoly mountain bike frames that you see all over bike co-ops...

 Grand Bois Hetres for your LHT, wtf...

Sunday Group Ride

This past Sunday, a few members of the shop went on a group ride down the Western Chehalis Trail. The ride takes a little over an hour to complete the 14.2 miles from our starting destination. Our end point was the Monarch Sculpture Park just south of Olympia. The weather was beautiful leading to a great afternoon overall.

We will be meeting every Sunday, 1PM at the squirty fountain downtown (4th and Water St.) if the weather is decent. Please come and join!
