The bike shop is located in the rear of the Preston Center. All repairs should be brought in through the front 

of the building to the ORAC front desk for check in.

 Typically e-bike motors will require specialized tools. We recommend visiting your local bike shop for jobs involving electric

motors and computers.

 ORAC offers mountain bike rentals but does not currently offer commuter models for renting.




If you would like to work on your own bike but don't have the tools, no problem. We stock ParkTool brand tools and accessories to get you back in the saddle. We also offer a DIY bike stand, located by the Preston Center bike racks.
