Can anyone lend a smaller-framed single speed or fixed gear bike for the try-a-bike jamboree on Saturday?

@rsprake : Something a a 5-ft-tall (give or take) person could handle.

we can always flip the wheel on stef’s new bike to make it fixed. its pretty small AND still has brakes so if someone panics they wont die.

pseudacris – i am a 5’2” lady and i have a 46cm single-speed bike which i commute on. i’ll likely be coming to the event, and would be happy to let folks try it out.

That would be great: rachel/colin/stefb!

I’m making some signs that say “for display only” and “ask to try me.” So, if you’re trying something, your bike can stay parked.

Everyone who signs a waiver will get either a rubber stamp on their hand or a wrist band, so the bike owners can just look for that + a helmet before letting someone ride.

There are going to be lots of strange ‘bents, some folding bikes, & bike trailers, among other things.

I can send Stef down with platforms and a pedal wrench to make the bike more accessible.
