Members use BBC Tools with mechanic assistance:
Julie Vitale came in with her library bike. Steve pumped up her tires and lubed her chain. Steve answered Julie’s quesitons about storage, folding bikes and other issues.
Steve Schmitt did some routine maintenance on his bike, pumping up his tires, cleaning/lubricating his chain and checking his rims/brake pads.

This week’s donations:
The BBC accepts donations of bicycles, bike parts, tools and supplies on Thursdays from 5-9PM and Saturdays from 8AM to 4PM at 1935 W Broad St. in Bethlehem. We provide a receipt for all contributions and we are a 501(c)3 educational charity under the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Barbara Rowley donated a carry all pack for mounting on a rear wheel rack and a book about cycling.
We are hoping someone will donate a dormer fan, preferably with two fans that operate independently and blow in different directions.
Jason, who wants to become a bicycle mechanic, visited for the second time. He wants to sign up for the next Basic Bicycle Mechanics. Edit Ginsberg is also interested in taking this class.
