The Bikery is an all-volunteer run, non-profit, community bike project located in Seattle, nestled between the central district and the international district. We are here to provide the tools and resources to help you learn about your bike and fix it yourself. We strive to create an inviting framework to engage people from all backgrounds regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, class, age, or ability. Together we can define and implement our vision of community and bicycle culture.

12/5/11! We held a last-minute Bikery bike building party. Folks were in and out throughout the day, and in addition to finishing a good amount of bikes, we also did some major space rearranging, and helped some folks out who came to our doors looking to fix their bikes.

Getting the right size bike! Here’s some help…

I earlier posted about some bikes that we have for sale at Ye Olde Bikery, and it might be wise to help people know whether a bicycle is the right size for them. Here’s a couple handy tips:

Road bikes are sized in Centimeters, and the frame size generally corresponds to the length of the “seat tube.” Go to this link, and find out what frame size is roughly correctly for your height: 

http://bicycling.about.com/od/howtoride/a/bike_sizing.htm

Mountain bikes (or, “MTB”), are sized in inches, also to the length of the seat tube. Here’s the link to help you size yourself:

http://bicycling.about.com/od/howtoride/a/MTB_sizing.htm

Often it’s helpful to know the “top tube” length, as it can factor how far forward your body will position while riding. For example, if you want a bike where you can ride comfortably while sitting mostly upright, you’ll want a bike with a shorter top-tube. If you have more questions, come into The Bikery and ask!
