Just a quick update.
We have had a great response from people; some have offered to help out, while others are keen to get a sweet bike or learn the ropes of bike maintenance .
Last Sunday I learned heaps off the boys of Bottles and Chains. This Sunday we are holding another session rain or shine. (bike soup?)
If you would like to get involved please email so we can make you privy to the details.
In other news, watch out for information about HBK’s presence at the Sustainable Living Expo 7&8th of November.
We are always looking for more bike with character. Check out this vintage Malvern Star Cruiser which we about to give a new life to.
This sunny Sunday was a good time for the shed to disgorge its wares for a sort out and a photo opportunity.
Things are starting to come together. We have invested in a portable workshop stand which means no more working on knees with bike propped against chin.
Our newest acquisition is a basic bike toolkit which we got (for a good price) from Cyclingo. ‘Right tool for the right job’ can be now realized!
From now on a ‘Sunday Session’ will be held weekly in the afternoon. Please call ahead so we know to expect you. Anybody who comes along gets our eternal gratitude and maybe some food/drinks. We also planning other events so keep a eye out!
This is the type of bike we love here at HBK: stylish, comfortable and reliable.
This particular bike already has a new home, but we have other similar frames waiting to be restored.
There was a wordpress page.
Welcome to Hobart Bike Kitchen’s website. Thanks for stopping by.
Currently based in Taroona, over the last few months we have amassed a collection of old bikes. This is what we like to call potential.
Our aim is to get the whole of Hobart rolling by giving its people access to cheap bikes as well as the tools and knowledge to maintain them.
We are always looking for knowledgeable people to get involved and any donations of bikes, parts or tools are greatly appreciated.
