Veloshop Mydo. A shop and repair workshop in Saint-Gilles.
A neighborhood repairer, ready to help.
Mydo is firstly the warm man who works in this shop between the Porte de Halle and the parvis de Saint-Gilles. His nickname has become that of the store he has been running alone for 16 years already. This 61-year-old mechanic converted to biking by chance and out of passion but does not aspire to becoming the most popular repairer in Brussels, he himself says he runs a neighborhood store. But behind the modest man, there is an experienced mechanic whose reputation is well established. Among the accessories of all kinds, there are also cutting-edge brands. Smartly stacked, adult and children’s bikes on sale are also many more than the storefront suggests. During opening hours, he provides a bicycle pump in front of his shop. And there’s how a local store succeeds in competing with the biggest brands regardless.
