We offer several bike workstations available for Do-It-Yourself repairs and custom build projects.
Each station is furnished with a shop stand and set of professional grade tools, service manuals and lubes.
We also have most repair parts in stock for purchase as needed.
If you know how to work on your bike and just need a place to work and perhaps occasional advice, these workstations just might be the ticket.
The stations are rented for $10/hour and can be reserved in advance.
Our DIY café offers espresso, coffee, tea and snacks. Help yourself and hang out while we work on your bike or stop by after the ride.
Bicycle Book Library
We have the largest library of bicycle related books, catalogs and magazines in western Queens. Feel free to hang out and read.
Free Group Classes
We offer hands-on classes open to all that cover basic bicycle maintenance and repairs. Come prepared to get your hands dirty. Check our events calendar for current class offerings.
Free basic maintenance classes are offered regularly. Each class lasts about 1 ½ hour, involves hands-on learning and is limited to no more than ten participants. Some upcoming classes include:
- Tire technology and how to repair a flat
- How to wrap handlebar tape
- Derailleur technology and how to adjust your derailleurs
- Wheel truing
- Pre-ride bike check up and safety checklist
Advanced hands-on classes cover more in depth repairs and are intended for cyclists who want to do their own maintenance. These classes are usually 4 or 5 hours long and offered on an irregular basis, whenever we get a bee in our bonnet, i.e. enough requests. We charge a nominal fee of $20 for the advanced classes. Class topics include:
- Complete bike tear down and rebuild
- Wheel building
- Bottom bracket and crank overhaul
For everything from wheel building to complete overhauls; for any service we offer, we can walk you through doing the task yourself for the same price as if we did the work for you.
We host a broad range of events, from lectures to sprint races to art exhibits to musical events. Check our events calendar for upcoming events. Have an event you would like to hold at Nomad? give us a call.
