Bicycle mechanics are an interesting breed. These mechanically inclined tinkerers spend a lot of time in their workshops and garages. They may be putting together esoterically interesting bicycles, or salvaging a bicycle hub with cones from a pile of other hubs collected over years of gathering parts. Unless they lucked into a friendship with a nearby neighbor that also shares their bicycle addiction, much of this time is spent in solitary. All that time spent alone can be a detriment to health and social well being. It doesn't have to be that way. Other cities have community bicycle spaces, and now there is one in Hartford - BiCi Co.!
