I'm new to the forums, but I stumbled on a related post and thought it was worth throwing this out here.
I am the coordinator for Canberra Cycle Share a FREE workshop where we help people fix and maintain their own bikes. We have tools, salvaged parts and expertise all available for free to help you address your bike's mechanical troubles. We've been meeting every Wednesday from 4-6pm, since April 2013 and are adding a meeting on the first Saturday of every month at the Gorman Markets, starting December 7.
This is open to anyone and has served members from varried communities within Canberra, so please don't be bashful. Meetings are extremely informal, require no RSVP and you are welcome to come-and-go as you please.
If you want more information, check out the facebook page or contact me.
