*Due to limited slots for tune-ups, free tune-ups are available first-come, first-serve for WashU employees. Tune-ups cover basic maintenance only; bike owners may be referred to a bike shop if repair needs do not fit within the scope of the basic tune-up. New format for repair scheduling: leave your bike for repair and receive a text when it is ready for pick up. In the mean time, visit with vendors, enjoy a smoothie from the smoothie bike, or grab lunch. Bikes will only be checked in for tune ups until 1:30p or up to 18 bikes. We cannot guarantee service for bikes brought after 1:30 or after the 18th slot is full.
