We are overcapacity, as our service is in such high demand. Through a generous grant from Mountain Equipment Co-op, Bikechain has facilitated the capital purchase and installation of bicycle fix-it stations. A fixit station can be used to fix a bike chain, pump up tires and overall, general maintenance without having to enter the Bancroft space. There are multiple tools such as a wrenches, screwdrivers, multi-tools kits, etc. For novices, we ask that students visit Bikechain first to learn how to do the repair.
For the first-half of 2015, there will be 3 fixit stations throughout the University of Toronto campus located at: Student Family Housing, St. Michael’s, and adjacent to the Bikechain space on Bancroft. The latest addition was supplied by F&S. For the second half of 2015 into 2016, we plan to install more fix it stations. Please visit this page for an updated map and instructions.
