Maintaining your bicycle
Look for the Bicycle Fixit stations around campus. Each Fixit comes equipped with a bike pump and all the equipment required to carry out simple bicycle maintenance and repairs, such as replacing a flat tire and adjusting brakes and derailleurs. With the help of stainless steel wires and tamper-evident fasteners, the tools are firmly fastened to the stand. Your bike may be hung from the hanger arms so that the wheels and pedals can spin freely while making adjustments.
