Not necessarily an attraction, but a nice addition to Cedar Rapids, the NEWBO Bike Collective, across the street from the NEWBO Market can assist with bicycle repairs for those who can't afford the local brick and mortar bike shops in the CR-IC Corridor. The idea is you do the work and someone explains/assists while you do the work. At this time, the hourly fee for stand time is $5.00. We went there this weekend after several of my attempts to replace a handlebar on a cheap bicycle for my daughter-in-law at the other retailers either ended with no stock or high prices for something I didn't need or didn't meet my needs. The place is conveniently located, there is plenty of parking around the area, and the volunteers that were there this past weekend seemed to be very friendly and helpful. I got a used mountain bike handlebar for $5 and it worked perfectly. PS - They also have some decent older bikes for sale as well, or some jalopies you can fix and make into an art bike. Open Sat & Sun. Thanks NEWBO Bike Collective!!
