Just moved to Cambridge from Edinburgh. I've got no tools but all the parts!! trying to find a DIY space on that website Google but can't find shite. Isn't Cambridge bicycle capital??
What tools do you need?
I've managed to get nearly everything that isn't too expensive - so missing a bike maintenance stand and a truing stand
Afraid I've never owned either of those, it's quiet on here at the moment but now you've mentioned what you haven't got then someone might be along
And yes a lot if bikes in cambridge
No worries, yeah there were two options (one being completely free) for borrowing tools and workspace with volunteers that helped out in Edinburgh - just find it really strange that nothing of that sort exists here. Closest I found was Wondergears but that's had to close
Sounds like you need MakeSpace Cambridge - http://makespace.org
Otherwise, Primo Cycles on Jesus Lane.
We used to have a bike coop on Newmarket Rd that would have been the ticket...sadly it's now being developed into luxury apartments (you'll notice this is a theme in Cambridge).
If makespace doesn't do it for you, post what tools you're after and maybe someone on here can help you out! In terms of shops, http://bicycleambulance.com/ is the place most geared towards fixies as far as I know.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
