Bike repair

I'll try and make this quick. I purchased an old WORKSMAN cycle, but it is in need of repairs. I am looking for a good bike shop(repairs) that can do the work, but more importantly understand that I have this bike because of my size, I am a fatty. The idea being to ride this bike to get some exercise. The bike is a single speed and was used at the Boeing plant in WA as a way to get around the large campus. I live in Corvallis, OR.

Look for a bike co-op. Folks there are far less judgemental and will most likely go out of their way to accommodate you. This isn't to say you can't or won't get the same courtesy in a bike, just that bike shops vary, and going to a co-op improves your odds.

...and I believe I've seen a bike co-op in Corvallis. It's on the south end of first street, across from the Beanery and within a few blocks.

I've never ridden in Corvallis but the place is full of bicyclists and looks like a good place to ride.
