anybody have a part-time/weekend out of the garage at home shop ?? im not talkin bout a full blown watch your money disappear in a matter of weeks thing.
definately too late in the year to get things organized, but for next spring id like to have a weekend shop out of my garage at home. i already feed my bike hobby from selling stuff on craigslist or locally, but i wondered if i could claim the word-of-mouth title of "the bike man" in my bikeshopless little town by workin out of my garage just doin repairs and maybe sellin some fixed up old bikes.
from the no-brainer bike problems ive seen my favorite bike shop have to deal with, i know im might be askin for trouble with some oddball people but shouldnt be anything i cant handle (as long as i have the tools that is).
just wondering if anyone else is doin the like already and have any advice ?
my house is already in a high traffic area for my town so i figured if i put a fancy paint job on an old cruiser and stick a "bikes" sign on it in the yard thats probably all the advertising i would need to get attention.
