Tumeke closed for a few weeks

Hey folks, Tumeke Cycle Space is shutting down for a few weeks while we wait for GHub and Auckland Council to negotiate a Landowner Agreement to formalize the rules for using the GHub Commons, the site we operate on. Hopefully should take just a couple of weeks. Stay tuned!

No Workshop on Sunday 31/March/2019

Hi y’all,

As a temporary measure (until we get our shipping container) we’ve been running our Sunday Tumeke workshops outside on the green. But obviously we are quite weather dependent. It’s not looking good today, so we’re going to cancel our workshop. Apologies if you were intending to come today – fingers crossed for next Sunday!

Tumeke is moving shop

Hey folks, after eight years at our Edinburgh Street, Newton digs, Tumeke is moving shop. We have to leave, because our building is for sale and Tangleball, our cohabitants, are closing shop.

So we’re moving to Gribblehirst Hub, aka Ghub, in Gribblehirst Park, Sandringham. Thanks to funding from the Lotteries Commission and the Albert-Eden Local Board, we’re getting our own shop on the GHub Commons (the bowling greens). We’re stoked about that and about synergizing with the energetic group of makers at GHub.

We’re moving Saturday 26 January. We won’t get our container for a few months —we’ll let you know when that happens— so in the meantime we’ll be operating in miniature under a tent on the GHub Commons Sundays 13:00–15:00, starting Sunday 3 February.

See you around the new digs!

Hi folks, the shop is overflowing with parts, so we’re going to sell some at a garage sale Sunday 1 July during shop hours (13:00–15:00).  Come down, grab a bargain, and support your local community bike shop!

New workshop hours

Hi folks, four of our seasoned Tumeke staff are changing life course, leaving Auckland and even New Zealand.  So we need to reduce our workshop hours until we find replacements, crossing out Wednesdays starting December.  That will bring our new hours to Thursdays 17:30–19:30 and Sundays 13:00–15:00.

See you then. And if you want to volunteer, inquire within!
