marlon rebuilds a babboe

At Workcycles we repair a lot of bikes, especially the transport bicycles since that's our speciality. About half the bikes in the shop are usually Workcycles but we're happy to fix anything as long as we can do the job well.


We're one of the few shops in Amsterdam that repairs Babboe bakfietsen so we see quite a few of them. The repairs are often extensive, such as this one that had the rotted wood panels, the rear wheel, saddle, seatpost, cranks, bottom bracket, brake lever, shifter and all cables replaced. It was more than a full day's work for the mechanic.


Ironically a Babboe is often much better bike when it leaves our shop than when purchased new.
