First post in this forum I hope to get some good feedback.
I have been repairing used bikes and putting them up for sale or even giving some away for over 3 years now. I don't need to make the extra money as much anymore and I work on a small private college campus so I figured a great thing to do would be to offer a fleet of bikes for students to use. I have 10+ bike frames in my garage That I could turn into very solid campus bikes. The biggest problem is I need shifters because most of them are none-working for various reasons including destruction. I am seriously considering buying a bunch of these Falcon friction thumbshifters. It seems cost effective and yet they should work well.
Any thoughts? I have done some research on campus bike programs of various places and kinds, but any feedback would probably be helpful. At this point all the funding I have is my own although I am probably going to see if a couple campus departments have some extra cash to help me with the project.
