Moving to Winnipeg, LF community bike shop

I'm a 40 yr old woman moving back to Winnipeg after a few years in Vancouver. I loved the bike co-op at UBC and am hoping there's one like this in Winnipeg as well. I'll be moving into a house between Polo Park and UofW and would prefer to find something in my neighbourhood if possible. I know about the bike dump which seems amazing, I'm just wondering if there's others out there closer to the west end/wolseley area.

The Bike Dungeon is on campus, never been there, never even been to Manitoba, I just found it via google.

EDIT: That's UofM not UofW, sorry.

Natural cycle is a good place. They are also a workers co-op. Last week one of the ladies there spent time trying to find a new post for my old saddle. Everywhere else I was told that I have to change the complete saddle which I didn't want to do.
They were also very busy so she gave me a mini-training on how to change the chain. I love that place.

they are located in 91 Albert St. (on the basement)

I agree, have used them three times from just a handlebar switch for my kids mtn bike to my specialized hard rock that was in an altercation with a divider at portage and main, work was excellent at a reasonable price

Thanks everyone. Iíve heard great things about Natural Cycle. Iím actually looking for a shop where I can take my bike in and work on it myself, similar to the Bike Dump which is at Main and Logan (I think?), but closer to the west end where Iíll be living. Someone I will be working with said her cousin is working with a bunch of people on setting up a second Bike Dump at some community centre in the West End. Does anyone have any idea what community centre?

I think you are talking about the Orioles CC.

Natural cycle can be hit or miss. I have friends that swear by it, but I went in their once looking for panniers for my rack. Took 15 min to explain that I was looking for a bike rack, not a car rack for bikes. And the guy had absolutely no idea what a pannier was.
