Can't fix your bike? Yes, you can. Third Ward's Workshop Houston gives you the tools and the knowledge to mend clicking cranks, hard-to-handle handlebars, flat tires and more — all for free (unless you need new parts, but those are practically free). They'll even teach you how to build your own bike. Sure, you could just leave your ride with a mechanic, but you might be surprised at how little time and money it takes to do it yourself. Already got the know-how? Don't let these guys stand in your way. Tell them the tools you need and they'll point you in the right direction. Stick around long enough and take a tour of the Chopper Shop. All profits are put back into expanding the shop and Workshop Houston's other charity projects that benefit Houston youth.
