I haven’t maintained my bike for a year, last week-end it got a long overdue tune-up.
Saturday I went to the Pedal Depot a small bike workshop, where you can rent stands and tools to fix your bike, with friendly employees to help you when you’re stuck or have a question, they also sell second hand parts.
There’s another bigger workshop nearby on Main St. I went there 3 years ago, I was able to buy and assemble my current bike for around $200. It took me almost 10 hours over 2 days to get it all done, it was long, but it was fun, and I learned a lot.
