As popular as bicycles are in Davis, a certain number of them are going to be constantly breaking down. Davis and the local region has many Bicycle Shops, both for profit and non-profit, that will get you back up and bicycling as soon as possible. Heck, some people even get religious about fixing bikes.

There is also information on Buying a Bike or Renting a Bike.
