  • New parts at affordable prices
  • Second-hand parts, Pay-What-You-Can : based on your ability to pay, pay what you feel the product is worth

You are requested to:

  • To sign the workshop charter.
  • Make a token contribution of 1€ for using workstations and tools

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.

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!

 With us, repairs are your responsibility! (If you have your cycle repaired by an approved bicycle dealer, you have a guarantee).

Our workshop is not equipped to repair electric bikes. Nor do we repair scooters!

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.
