Staffed by students, this shop encourages you to bring in your bike to learn how to do small repairs yourself. The Bike Nest has a limited selection of items, such as tubes and repair kits, but in cases of larger repairs, you’ll need to provide your own supplies (available at local bike shops such as GreenStreet Cycles and the Community Bike Project Omaha).
