Broken Spoke Open Bike Workshop @ Oxford
Jul 14 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

However big or small your bike-related issues are, get yourself down to our open workshop. We’ve got a fully stocked community tool chest (so you don’t have to spend a fortune on a tool you’ll use twice), lots of lovely bike stands and friendly mechanics to give you a hand.

We keep a stock of all the parts that wear out regularly and we also sell secondhand parts, so if you’re looking for a deal (or something slightly rare), we might have just the thing!
