How it works
We are renovating bikes from the stock we have in the community workshop.
They are not amazing, but the Cycling UK funding will allow them to be refurbished as throughly as possible, and we are putting the best bikes together from what we have.
Our volunteer mechanics are single handedly working in the Bike Lab Workshop, to keep social distance. Each bike will be checked by two mechanics before it is sent out.
We will deliver the bikes to the key workers, having cleaned contact surfaces, and a non contact handover process will be used.
As ever, Bike Lab Hastings offers no warranty or guarantee on the bikes. The bikes have been donated to the project and we don’t know the history of them. We make judgement calls that the bikes are worth repairing, and we check the work of our mechanics within our team, but no liability is accepted in any way.
We will always endeavour to help people keep riding though, so if there any issues with the bikes, we will try and help. And hopefully we can open our public workshop sessions at some point so we can do more skill sharing.
We will post images of the renovated bikes here, as examples of what we are getting ready. We are aiming for strong practical bikes that are useful for taking exercise on, collecting shopping and commuting.
