Via Bike Blog NYC and 718 Cyclery.

Krys Blakemore is a fantastic bike mechanic (and terrific artist) who’s worked at 718 Cyclery from the beginning.  Joe Nocella, 718’s owner, writes:

On March 15th, Krys was hit by a car here in Brooklyn.  After major surgery, she is unable to walk, work or ride her bike. Her rehab period will be extensive, but a full recovery is planned.

Krys was 718 Cyclery’s first employee, and is the kind of person who would help others at a moment’s notice.  She is also the kind of person who would never dream of asking for help…

I am not that kind of person…please donate what you can to help offset the costs of her not being able to work.
Krys is part of the reason 718 is so special and by now has probably worked on half of the bikes wheeling around Brooklyn these days.  You can learn more and donate by clicking here.

    Any chance some of her art is for sale anywhere? I would love to buy/help.

      I’m not sure. Try calling or emailing Joe at 718 Cyclery for an answer. He would probably know.
