Hey Girls! Bring your bicycle to FrankenBike #114 aka FrankenBabe # 7 and East Side Pedal Pushers will make sure that your bike is in safe riding condition. Please note that while the tune-ups are free, replacement parts such as cables, brake pads, chains, bottom brackets, etc., - if needed to repair your bike - will have an additional cost. However, in the tradition of FrankenBabe, these parts will be provided at a discounted rate. Also note that this free service is on a first come first served basis and the tune-ups will run from 10am-3pm only.
We will also be giving away a Brand New Bicycle during the event. The free raffle for a Brand New Bicycle will be held at 3:30pm on January 31, 2015 at Yellow Jacket Social Club during FrankenBike # 114 aka FrankenBabe # 7. The rules are simple in that you must be present to win and everyone gets one free raffle ticket. Please note that past bicycle winners are excluded from participating in the free raffle as are current and past FrankenBike Organizers as well as current and past FrankenBike Sponsor Principals and Management. Please also note that you can acquire additional raffle tickets by simply bringing in YOUR receipts from purchases YOU’VE made – between December 30, 2014 and January 31, 2015 – at any of our Austin FrankenBike Sponsors listed below. More receipts means more raffle tickets for YOU.

It's been a while since we had one, but this January we'll see the return of Lady Bike! Lady Bike is a special shop for women, by women. Fixing bicycles and mechanics in general are often seen as male-dominated pursuits. Lady Bike exists to create an atmosphere free from such stereotypes and paradigms, and anyone who identifies as female is welcome. It’s been a long time since we’ve scheduled a Lady Bike shop. However, we strive to create a safe and welcoming space at all of our shops for everyone, regardless of gender and background, and there are female coordinators on hand at many of our Open and Volunteer Shops. Want to help make Lady Bike happen more often? Apprentice to become a coordinator!
We're Overrun With Bikes & They're 10% Off
