CAT members using BBC Tools with mechanic assistance:

Scott and Lee worked on changing the fork on Steve’s commuter bicycle, but ran into problems when the new fork did not contain v-brake bosses.


Bike Education:

New member Jim, discussed with LCI Scott, that he would like to learn the streets of Bethlehem so he can ride confidently from his apartment for training rides.  He also discussed that Curt’s Cyclery helped him get fitted comfortably on his road bike.
