Thursday 5 - 8 pm
In October 2011, the foundation stone was laid for the bicycle workshop at the current location. It is intended to offer students and staff of the university, as well as all other interested parties, the opportunity to repair their bicycles at low cost, to clean and maintain parts, or simply to drop by for a chat. Since September 2015, the StuRa has been cooperating with the Engineers without Borders (IOG). Volunteer students are on hand to give advice and support to visitors during the weekly openings of the workshop.
The bicycle workshop is located in the former motorbike garages opposite House D. It is currently open once a week on Thursdays between 5 and 8 pm. We have set up this booking page for appointments. Check out our Facebook page for news about the workshop as well as events and dates.
The students who are involved in the bicycle workshop do so on a voluntary basis. Of course, the use of the workshop is free of charge, but we still appreciate any donation that allows us to buy consumables such as oil, grease and tube patches or to replace worn tools. This is the only way we can maintain or further improve our services.
In the bicycle workshop you will find a wide range of hand tools. In addition to screwdrivers, spanners, Allen keys, pliers and hammers, there are special tools for common components and a truing stand. We will be happy to answer your questions about the equipment before your visit if you need a special tool.
We do not have a large range of spare parts, but there are always plenty of used parts in the workshop. You usually have to get new parts yourself. The bicycle shops in Ilmenau are a good place to start. Wearing parts such as gear and brake cables, cable covers and brake pads can be purchased from us at cost price.We look forward to seeing you and your bikes!
