Your rumors are pretty accurate: http://www.regenbogenfabrik.de/Proje...ogenfabrik.htm

The other DIY repair place I know of is at the Humboldt University: http://www.refrat.hu-berlin.de/~hub/main.php (German only)

And if you want someone to do repairs for you, I'd recommend the worker-owned Radspannerei in Kreuzberg. They also sell nice bikes. http://www.rad-spannerei.de/en/index.php
