The Brake Room


MSU Break Room - Tools

CLOSED until further notice.

Are you a student and want to learn how to repair or maintain your bike, skateboard or rollerblade for free? Learn to work on your own bike in our fully-equipped workshop, the first bike repair workshop on campus for MSU Bikes. You’ll learn how to repair your bike from our experienced staff, who work for MSU. The Brake Room is also a place to just come and hangout with other people who share a passion for sustainable non-motorized transportation!

However, you MUST let us know that you’re coming as there is limited workshop space and staffing capacity.

What’s There

There are three work stations with proper tools available on a first-come-first-served basis. A nice hangout area includes couches, a large screen monitor and a gaming system with room to enjoy with friends.

How To Sign Up
