Open for self-service 24 hours/7 days

Thanks to the Champlain College Green Revolving Fund, a bicycle mechanic workshop space is located in the Juniper Hall 'Tuning' Room (conveniently located beside the Juniper Hall indoor bicycle storage room) for use by any student or employee to maintain or repair your bicycle. The space is staffed during the academic year by our Bicycle Program Coordinator to offer expert advice, tips and tricks. Bring your bike in, learn how to lube and maintain your bike or ask a questions about something that is bothering you on your bike. This space has:

  • a bicycle specific deluxe wall-mounted repair stand
  • full mechanics tool kit
  • floor pump
  • truing stand
  • workbench
  • rags, lube and other cleaning supplies
  • instructional bike mechanic book
  • shelving
  • random assortment of spare bike parts parts in filing cabinets for use by anyone who needs them
  • bulletin boards with quality information, maps and brochures
  • first aid kit (just in case)

To obtain key card access to the room, simply email reslife@champlain.edu.

To obtain access to the tools (they are kept in a combination locked cabinet), complete the liability waiver below. You will be given the combination to the cabinet upon completion. This will ensure tools are respected and if stolen, there is some record of who has approval to use the tools and who has previously entered the room using the key card access data.

The space is anticipated to play host to future clinics on bicycle repair and maintenance for employees and students, so watch this space! Come check it out and spin a few wrenches.
