Photography and text:
There are some bike shops that also have a repair service that will just try to sell you a new bike whenever they have the first chance to do it. I just don't like that, specially when my bike is quite old, and some shops won't even take it to repair it.
I just got a bit tired of that kinda repair shop attitude, quite common in Munich_ until we found Second Hand Sports. This is also kind of a classic in Munich since they have a good second hand bike´s bussiness and a lot of vintage bikes in their Lager with a good price. For many people that comes around Octoberfest and stays for a few days and buys a bike for the days they are in town for a modest price, this is the place to come to.
I was actually like quite desperate trying to avoid all the impulses of the salesmen trying to get me in the “consume_consume mood /”is the end of the world” if you don’t get a new bike NOW whenever I tried to take my bike to a repair spot until i found these guys. I got there, and I was like, I can tell you already that i don’t want to buy a new bike, I like mine. And the guy said, talking a look at my Fahrrad: it probably just needs a bit of love. Come back next week and you’ll have it repaired. I just felt such a relief since I love my old Hercules. Is perfect just as it is.
It's still faster than you could draw it
