Among the facilities we’ve been building at the new Hackpsace are cycle parking and repair. We’ll be using them this Saturday to host BikeHood (Web, Facebook) and run a bike maintenance workshop. It takes place from 12:00 – 15:00, Saturday the 17th of September.
Everyone from beginners to experienced mechanics are welcome, and you don’t even need to have a bike to learn the basics of how to look after one. If you bring your bike down, we’ll be happy to help you diagnose any problems and fix it if possible. If you don’t have a bike or leave it at home, we can still show you the rudiments of maintaining one. In terms of tools, we have pretty much everything except a wheel truing stand.
It’s open to members and non-members alike. It’s more of a surgery than a workshop, in that we’ll deal with each bike on a case by case basis. Because of that, rather than have a fixed workshop price like most events, all we ask is that if you learn or fix something you make a small donation to the hackspace.
Again, that’s from 12:00 – 15:00, Saturday the 17th of September. Come down and we’ll teach you about bikes.
