We are excited to announce our official opening of The WRENCH at the Forks for the summer season of 2020. Things are slightly different this year due to COVID, but we are here to get you rolling on a bike! For more information see below.
Forks Bicycle Sales – Saturdays 12-6pm
From road bikes, to mountain bikes, vintage cruisers, to custom commuters, our ever changing selection has a bicycle for everyone! With each sale supporting The WRENCH’s bicycle programming for children and families across Winnipeg!
*Please note bike sales are only at this location for the summer season.
Forks Bicycle Repairs – Sundays 12-6pm
We are happy to be able to offer COVID-safe bike repairs and used part sales. In order to maintain physical distancing, bicycles are being worked on by WRENCH staff and are sanitized upon completion. All repair services and used parts are by sliding-scale donation.
The WRENCH at the Forks is located at the box cars, in the North-West corner of the Forks Market building.
We are now open Thursdays from 12 – 4:30 at 1057 Logan to help you with bike repairs and parts sales!
WRENCH staff will be set up outdoors to accept bicycles for repairs and take orders for used parts. All repairs will be done inside by WRENCH staff and sanitized upon completion.
We continue offering affordable sliding-scale pricing for repairs and used parts. In order to ensure physical distancing we cannot have the public in our shop, this means that volunteering is not possible at this time.
Open Shop days are intended to give access to those who cannot otherwise afford bicycle repair services.
Please note that we cannot offer Bike Builds at this time.
All WRENCH programming is suspended until mid July, 2020.
WRENCH community, we are all thinking of you in this trying time and want you to know that we are working hard at building services to offer you during the closure of our space and programming. In the meantime, we hope you are still enjoying riding your bikes in accordance to all social distancing safety recommendations!
Are you 14 years old or older and going to school?
Do you like bikes?
Do you want to learn how to build and paint a custom bike for yourself?
Would you like to make money with your new skills?
Sign up for the WRENCH’s Youth Bike Builders – After School Leaders program.

In this workshop Kim will elaborate upon the ergonomics of bike riding, how to achieve proper bike fit for maximum comfort and minimal strain, as well as working with / preventing injuries.
This workshop is free (though donations are welcome!) and open to the public, no pre-registration required.
