Tokyo Fixed Gear: New Workshop Mar 15, 2012

You can’t work on bikes in a messy shop. My goal in the next few weeks is to build a legit workshop. It just makes life easier, as the Tokyo Fixed Gear team has found out. They’ve got a new shop and that means, new pricing and specials. Head to their site to see how they could become your LBS if they aren’t already (in London).

    • yeah-hah, now!

      Tzitzalis: Wrapping bars properly takes a lot of time and experience. This may be surprising to some, viz., those who have never actually tried to wrap their bars or don’t mind a bulgey and gappy wrap. Because it is time consuming and requires attention to detail it is going to cost some money for a shop to do it.

      John: Regarding your new shop: pix or gtfo.

         agree with you at some point but 10p its lot of money man
        Also its better for a newbie to learn from his faults rather than spending 10pounds to someone who could do this for him, for free

          Is that the kinda shit everyone bashes on the Internet? Shit wrap jobs? It’s always better to learn but you can’t hate on a shop for charging for a professional service. But if you hung around shops long enough, you’d know that… ;-)

             i hung around a lot but what you dont understand is that 10p is A LOT OF MONEY for that lil shit offer (in europe)

    I need to set up a proper shop as well.  Been in my first house with a garage for over a year now and still haven’t gotten to it.  I would be interested to read about your experience, tips, what works, etc.  Read your blog daily!
