There might be a co-op in Boone. However their web site is a little non-functional at the moment.

Check this list for others: http://www.communitycycles.org/links...llectives.html

Denver - The Park Hill Bike Depot - http://thebikedepot.org/

Each year, The Bike Depot takes in hundreds of bikes from people like you, whips them into shape, and finds them a new home in the community. We'd love to help your old bike make someone very happy. We accept bikes in any condition; parts and accessories too. We are committed to recycling, so if it can't be used - it will be recycled if at all possible.

Mission

The Park Hill Bike Depot supports health and active living by increasing access to bicycles, promoting safe, bike-friendly environments and advocating for policies that promote bicycle access and use.
Programs and Services

The Park Hill Bike Depot aims to improve health, build skills and foster personal development of youth and adults through community-oriented educational and recreational bicycle programs and services, including:
  • Refurbishing gently used, donated bicycles
  • Redirecting donated bicycles for use in community programs
  • Providing bike safety education and bike riding instruction programs
  • Offering community Earn-A-Bike programs for Park Hill and surrounding communities
Area residents of all ages and abilities who are in need of a bike and can't otherwise afford one can earn a bike at The Bike Depot by completing the following:
  • Attend a basic bike safety and maintenance class
  • Complete community service time through various activities
  • Choose a bike and complete basic adjustments and repairs.
  • Get fitted for and receive a bicycle helmet

For Trenton, NJ, there's the Boys & Girls Club Bike Exchange Capital Plaza. It's actually in Ewing, I think.

Bike sales on Thursday evenings and pretty much all day on Saturday. I've started volunteering there lately... it's a lot of fun. Some great old bikes to be had for a song.

See the link above for information on a bike coop in Princeton; I haven't been there, so I can't comment on it.

Omaha, Ne
Community Bicycle shop

Hours
12-4 pm Saturday
6-8 pm Wednesday
6-8 pm Thursday

http://communitybicycleshopomaha.org/

From their site:
Quote:
One day, one individual saw a need for a place where Gifford Park children and neighbors could learn about bicycle maintenance and safe riding. He rallied together volunteers from all walks of life who were willing to contribute however they could to bring a community bicycle shop to life. In May of 2007, the shop’s doors opened to the community. Today the Community Bike Shop of Omaha is run 100% by volunteers and donations. We’re in this entirely not-for-profit and to provide a positive place for teaching bicycle mechanics and safety. And we’re truly invested in building community along the way.

Freecycles here in Missoula.

http://www.strans.org/

Very rootsy, almost all volunteer run except for the one very dedicated employee, Bob.

It's entirely re-used/recycled parts, which has its limitations, but there are lots of tools, space, workstands, and free parts which are available to anyone at no charge during hours of operation.

In Buffalo, NY there is Buffalo Blue Bicycles. It's a co-op/bike share sort of deal. Don't know much about it myself, but it's been around for a little while now.
