The Greater Dayton RTA will now offer full-service bike repair via its new Wright Stop Bike Shop downtown.

The agency will host an Open House on Monday, June 13, at 10:30 a.m. to celebrate the repair shop opening, according a media release.

The new service will be offered beginning June 13. The repairs provided vary from tune-ups to complete overhauls.  A full list of services and pricing is available at the shop.  Wright Stop Bike Shop hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Performance Management Analyst John Hoff said the repair shop's downtown location is “a perfect complimentary service for RTA to provide.”

“Having a community resource for bike repair for downtown Dayton residents is a natural extension of our current transit services," Hoff said.  “We want all cyclists to take advantage of the new shop for repairs and safety advice.”

The three-person staff of bike technicians at RTA has over 16 years of bike repair experience.  The team is also receiving additional training from the Barnett Bicycle Institute for Bicycle Mechanics.

The Wright Stop Bike Shop is located near RTA’s Wright Stop Plaza on Main Street in Dayton, which also houses the Link Dayton Bike Share facility. RTA owns and maintains the Link Dayton Bike Share bikes.
