Our Services

The Bike Cave gets you on a bike and keeps you there. Come use our self-serve workstations, or pay a student bike tech to do it for you.

 

Self Service/DIY

If you know how to work on your bike, the Bike Cave has the tools and workspace you need. If you want to learn, the Bike Cave technicians can teach you. Use of the tools, workspace, and teaching is free. If you need parts like a tube, we sell them at a low cost.

 

Paid Service

Our staff can work on your bike at an hourly rate, just like a commercial bike shop. This is a great option for people who are busy studying or a little unsure about attempting a complicated repair. However, unlike a regular bike shop, you must stick around while the service is performed.
