Tune-Ups & Repairs

Just stop by during open hours! The Bike Shack staff are happy to help you with basic tune-ups, fixing flat tires, crooked handlebars, stuck brakes and the like. Often, the Bike Shack can give you spare parts for free, or new parts at cost. Moreover, if you have a safety concern with your bike, don't hesitate to ask us! We will most likely be able to address your concern or refer you to someone who can. 


The Bike Shack staff can help you learn almost anything about bike mechanics, such as:

  • How to ride a bike
  • Proper cycling rules and etiquette, both on the street and on the pathways
  • Basic bike mechanics
  • Fix-a-flat
  • Sizing and fitting your bike
  • How to load your bike onto the busses.
  • The best way to lock up your bike and avoid theft

Let us know what you'd like to learn about by emailing or just stopping by during open hours.


Build-A-Bike Program

This is a service-learning program in which Naropa students, faculty, staff and alumni dedicate time to learning how to build a bike from the ground up with the understanding that they can keep their bike, when finished.

  • Earned bikes will be built in the Bike Shack with assistance from Bike Shack staff and from our used parts*
  • Open to all Naropa community members

*Naropa Cycles gladly accepts donations of bike parts and bike related items to support this program.
