Skills required: previous attendance at a bike workshop to learn the basics of bike maintenance (we won’t go back over the basics).

The Labo-Fûtés are small group workshops that allow you to go further in your project, while benefiting from personalized support, thanks to the expertise of our Sharpeners.

In this Lab, limited to 6 participants, Arnaud, our bike mechanic, will be there to guide you through your project.

To attend, you’ll need to come with a personal project, or with a project you’ve already started (maintenance, repair, tuning). Arnaud will be able to give you advice as you go along, and help you with a step that’s holding you up.

The tools will be made available to you, but note that you’ll need to bring all the consumables you’ll need (brake cables and/or pads, tubes, tires, parts, etc.).

It’s possible to come to the Village on the opening day for autonomy, to use the tools on your own ($9/hr).
