Fixing a flat

Countway Library Bike Pump

Repair Stations

Bike Parking LMA 2

The repair stations on campus have all the tools you need to fix a flat tire; however, the pumps can be unreliable. Since they’re stored outside, the pumps’ seals often wear out and break. We recommend using the pump at the Countway Library circulation desk instead.
