Back2bikes workshop stand time

At Back2bikes we have a fully equipped bike workshop, with most of the tools you will ever need for fixing a bike. We also have people who know how to use them, and are willing to show you, help you with the fiddly things, and get you past the oh sheet! moments that happen every now and then.

The $30 fee is to provide you with access to a work stand and tools for up to 3 hours, that’s only $10 an hour. We also have a stock of commonly used parts such as brakes, cables, tyres, chains, cassettes etc should you need them. You’ll also have to pay for these if you use any.

The idea is that you should mostly know what you are doing. We are not going to do the work for you. If you are an absolute beginner, the 6 week training course is a better idea (or even just some of the sessions). We will help you, and we encourage you to ask if you are not sure about how to do something. We prefer if you can ride your bike home afterwards, and will go the extra mile to make that happen (within reason). Worst case we can loan you a bike.

If you have a project like a bike build, we can advise you on what parts to buy (from eg Wiggle/Chain Reaction/Ribble etc) to make sure everything works together. Come half an hour early (and be sure to let us know) for advice.
