24 Hour Coin Operated Bike Shop

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

As human existence goes on, I’m continually fascinated by the objects people put into vending machines. Candy bars, hot sandwiches, coffee, ice cream bars delivered by vacuum tubes, used women’s underwear, iPods, etc. But Traif Bike Gesheft’s shop installed a vending machine that sells bike parts, and I’m willing to call it the most useful vending machine ever. So if it’s 3am and you need a tube, brake pads, patch kit, pump, handle bar tape, or any other smaller part, you can scrape up some quarters instead of walking your bike home.

Besides helping out riders in a pinch, the bike shop is also the hosts free bike workshops by Time’s Up. Who throw awesome parties for environmental causes and one of the city’s greatest resources for cyclists.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
