IMHO if the main thing is about community bike repair (and not another feature like a cafe etc. which provides the service), a main tag is required. I agree that shop=bicycle is somehow stretching the meaning of the tag, although it might fit into the current definition (not sure what the definition of „store“ is):

and it isn’t clear what “and” means, is it a requirement that you can buy accessories, or an optional?

To me it appears that a place where you can get a bicycle for free would clearly not be covered by this definition, while a place where you can get your bike repaired (or repair it yourself) for free would probably be.

Anyway, just a property like "service:bicycle:repair=yes" and a name would not work, IMHO
