Do-it-yourself workshop ? How does it work?
Our workshop is inspired by the philosophy of self-repair and knowledge-sharing (Learn To... Do-It-Yourself).
In other words: instead of fish, we'll give you a fishing rod. NO STRESS! You'll be accompanied by (usually) smiling volunteers.
If you've got the part(s) you need to change with you, that's great, but if not, we'll look in our second-hand gear, although our stock isn't unlimited.
We guarantee the following new parts: brake pads (no disc pads), cables, chains, inner tubes, small parts... but it's up to you to bring your own tyres, cassettes, chain, etc... Hydraulic brakes are not available from us at the moment!
The MolemBIKE team and volunteers are not responsible for repairs carried out in the workshop.
With us, repairs are your responsibility! (If you have your cycle repaired by an approved bicycle dealer, you have a guarantee).
We repair (with you) only mechanical bicycles and the mechanical parts of electric bicycles, wherever possible.
Our workshop is not equipped to repair electric bikes. Nor do we repair scooters!
"Are you only open on Tuesday evenings?
That's right, from September to June. And that costs us a lot of energy! On Tuesday evenings, the workshop is run mainly by volunteers. On the other days of the week, we work on other projects, which is why we can't welcome you for your repairs.
You'll be accompanied by volunteers during your one-hour slot, but they're not the only ones. not responsible repairs.
Booking is a commitmentIn the event of cancellation, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can make room for other people on the waiting list. You can do this directly via the e-mail confirming your appointment.
You can pay on site in cash or by card.
