What about electric bicycles?

Werkmmaat takes care of all the usual repairs such as a flat tire, broken brakes, ... also on electric bicycles! However, Werkmmaat does not carry out maintenance or repairs on the electronics of the bicycle (such as motor, battery and on-board computer). If these parts require repairs or inspection, it is best to consult a specialized bicycle repair shop, ideally where you bought the bicycle.

What about very dirty bicycles?

If your bike is very dirty and neglected, in addition to being repaired, it can also be cleaned by Werkmmaat. And this for a fee of 10 euro per quarter hour started (dd June 2022). You request this through the regular application form and note this request in the comments field. Do count on the fact that the bike will not be returned the same day, usually you will have it back within the week. So byebye dust, cobwebs and green deposits, it is so much nicer to cycle on a clean bike!

How much does that cost?

Count on €15 for minor repairs, + the material, + wages at 10 euros per 15 minutes started, + 5 euros for collection costs (not applicable if you hand in your bicycle at De Wielredders yourself). More details on the indicative prices for most common repairs can be found here (Dutch only). 

How do I pay? 

You will receive an invoice by email containing a payment link. At De Wielredders you can only pay with bancontact, they also accept ecocheques.

Fix your bike yourself with our bike repair boxes or kiosks!

You can also tinker with your bike yourself with the tools from one of the University's repair boxes or bike repair kiosks! 

Every campus has several bike repair boxes that you can borrow. In such a box you will find materials for maintenance and minor repairs, such as a bicycle pump, pliers, cone wrench, inner tubes, brake cables and insulation tape. 

A bike repair kiosk is a robust column equipped with a pump and 8 common tools such as tyre lifters, screwdriver, adjustable spanner, ....

The exact locations where you can find these bike repair boxes and kiosks can be found in the student portal or on Pintra.
