TAPS Home | Transportation | Bikes | Bike Maintenance and Repairs
The TAPS Bicycle Program co-sponsors a weekly bicycle maintenance clinic with OPERS to assist UC affiliates with keeping their bikes in safe operating condition. During fall, winter and spring quarter, free drop-in bicycle maintenance is offered on Thursdays at the Recreation Office Porch located at the East Field House, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Expert bike maintenance specialists are available ath the clinic to assist you with your repairs. If you know what parts your bike needs purchase them in advance and take them along to the repair clinic. Call OPERS Recreation staff at 831/459-2806 for more information.
TAPS has recently installed Fixit bike repair stations at the following locations:
The Fixit includes all the tools necessary to perform basic repairs and maintenance, from changing a flat to adjusting brakes and derailleurs. The tools and air pump are securely attached to the stand with stainless steel cables and tamper-proof fasteners. Hanging the bike from the hang arms allow the pedals and wheels to spin freely while making adjustments. For help with repairs use the Quick Read (QR) code on the front of the Fixit to view detailed instructions on your smart phone or view the bicycle repair guide online.
