Spring cleaning?

Got an old bike cluttering up your shed, garage or basement? Bike Clinic Too can transform that unsightly beater into transportation for one of its needy clients.

I was just at Old Town Bike Shop, getting a new stem for an old bike of my own, and BCT’s Brian Gravestock told me that he’s low on rolling stock and in need of donations to keep the op’ humming along. For a quick rundown on the clinic’s mission, you can listen to a recent report by KRCC-FM’s “Western Skies.”

The clinic’s clientele prefers mountain bikes when they can get ‘em, and of course functional bits such as cassettes and chain rings are always welcome. Locks, too, are eagerly received — it seems there’s been a rash of bike thefts lately, and every bike lifted means another bike is needed.

Old Town will accept donations for the clinic. So will Criterium Bicycles. And the clinic is always happy to accept money, as sometimes it has to buy parts to put a beater back in business. Tell ‘em the Dog sent you.

    Down this way there is the upcoming Bike Swap in Albuquerque come April (check the BikeABQ site) and Chainbreaker collective in The City Extremely Different, for anyone in these parts with something to donate to a needier soul.

    Patrick – do these guys have a Paypal setup? It’s MUCH simpler for us to make a donation that way. I looked around a bit on those sites and didn’t see it so if it’s there, clue me in, thanks.

    Funny, I just picked up a nice old Panasonic mtb at the Goodwill this morning that I thought Brian could use. I’ll clean it up and drop it by Old Town. I’ve got a few old parts they might want, too.
