We are launching a Kickstarter campaign!
Freds bike shop wants to open a friendly space for cyclists to enjoy local beer and wine along with light fare and non-alcoholic refreshments adjacent to the central DSM trail, at the Green Bridge. We look forward to creating a safe and open space for all cyclists to make a pit stop for refreshments and to enjoy the gathering space with other trail users. These funds will cover that cost of permitting & build out with improvements to our retail space to include a small communal space that serves wine and beer, cover some overhead cost while in construction phase and buy needed equipment for new concession area.
General bike repair starts at $20 per hour. Final price will be dependent upon hours worked and parts incurred.
Your bike will be cleaned, cables checked and replaced if needed, drivetrain and other moving components cleaned and re-lubed, wheels straightened, check for chain stretch, bearings properly adjusted and tires filled to proper PSI. $60
Bike will be completely torn down to frame. Headset, bottom bracket, hubs, brakes and drive train rebuilt. Chain replaced if necessary (additional charge for 9,10,11 speed chains) and parts checked for stretch damage. $185
You rent our bench and use our tools with guidance when you need it for $8 an hour.
A four week long class that will meet once a week for 2 hours. Over the course of four weeks we will cover general bike maintenance.
