Mark Your Calendars! SBK’s SPRING VELO SWAP and YARD SALE is coming soon!

Date:      Saturday, May 19, 2018

Time:      9:00am-12:00 noon

The Sacramento Bicycle Kitchen will be having a Velo Swap: We will have vendors in the parking lot selling all things bicycle. Stop by to buy, sell( must sign up to be a vendor), or swap! All things cycling related are welcome: parts, frames, wheels, clothes, accessories, and more!

Vendor fee is $5 and space is limited. 

While this all happens in the parking lot, SBK volunteers will also be doing some spring cleaning inside and bringing out excess stock to sell at reduced prices at our Yard Sale tent!  SBK stock will be for sale only– we can not buy or trade!   The more you buy, the more we will bring out!

SBK’s regular Saturday shift will be held inside the shop from 10am-2pm; items for sale inside the shop are not part of the yard sale and will remain at their regular prices.

Email ellissa@sacbikekitchen.org if you’re interested in being a vendor or if you have any questions.

Upcoming Class on 4/9/18: Working with Rim Brakes!

Join us for our hands-on brake maintenance class that will teach you how to perform common repairs and adjustments for rim brakes, including:

  • Installing brake cables

  • Adjusting brake pads and cable tension to help you stop safely and effectively

  • Diagnosing common annoyances with brakes like squeaking and rubbing

Preferred experience: Participants should be familiar with basic maintenance, like fixing a flat tire, using a wrench/screwdriver, etc.

Please bring your own bicycle if you have one. Cable brake systems vary from bike to bike and we’d like you to learn how to fix the brakes on *your* bike. If you do not have a bicycle, you may use one of our shop bikes.

Class location and date:

Sac Bike Kitchen

Cost to Attend:

FREE (excluding parts if applicable)

Other things to know:

  • The purpose of all SBK classes is to *teach* you how to perform bicycle repairs. Therefore, we cannot be held responsible for any damage your bicycle may incur during the class nor can we guarantee that you will have a functioning bicycle at the end of the class, especially if your bicycle was not functioning properly prior to the class.

  • We have limited experience working with disc brakes and coaster brakes (the kind where you pedal backward to stop). We will be happy to take a look and apply what knowledge we have, but may not be able to answer all questions you may have about them.


Great! Please RSVP to classes@sacbikekitchen.org

Saturday Hours Change

Effective February 24th, we are changing our Saturday hours to 10am-2pm until further notice!

As usual, all shifts are subject to closure should we not have enough volunteer power. This is the reality of a volunteer-run space. If this makes you unhappy, consider becoming a Volunteer–it’s the BEST!!!
