    Really nice people to ask for advice. They also have a tool sharing area (you need ID for that).

    Actually it's less than 3 pages. But if you'd rather have somebody else take the time to do your work for you, that's cool. I'm sure your time is much more valuable than ours.

    I manage the work area of the Mt pleasant Bike Co-operative (Central Michigan). We have lots of scrap bike parts, and all the tools you would need to work on your bike. If your touring and need company and a place to stay, I would love to help you out.

    We're located in the basement of Justice Records.

    My cell-phone number is at the shop, so if you need anything give me a call!

    If there are any lansing Co-op people or any other Bike co-op people in MI, shoot me a PM! i would love to discuss events/fundraisers.

    If you're in the South Bay of San Francisco, then it's tough living for bike co-ops. The closest thing is in Santa Cruz which is the SC Bike Church.
    http://bikechurch.santacruzhub.org/
    They have a very knowledgeable staff, plenty of workspace, and well organized bins stuffed full of all those little parts that your LBS just can't track down.
    Currently, though, in San Jose we don't have anything that's an official bike co-op, as strong as our bike community may be. There are some shops that are nice enough to show you a thing or two, and let your borrow their tools.
    http://www.bicycleexpress.net/
    Bicycle Express is probably the best shop for this. You can't go in and be all like "yo, show me how to build my bike" but if you have a basic understanding of frames and components, then they can help out here and there.
    Also, Faber's Cyclery is a bicycle museum/pick n pull, and Alex who runs it is more than happy to help you track down parts and show you how to install them. Not quite a co op, not quite a shop, but somewhere in the middle where you can get your needs met if you're patient.

    It is in my strong opinion that our community is in great need of a community bike co op, but until then this is what we'll have to settle for.

    The Hub bicycle co-op in Bellingham, WA:

    http://myweb.wwu.edu/~browna30/index.html

    I just moved here so I don't know a whole lot about them. I stopped in there last week and it seemed like a great place. Tons of old frames hanging all over the place, bins of parts everywhere, and seemingly very helpful and knowledgeable staff. It looks like a good place to be.

    Here's a new co-op in St John's Newfoundland. Saw a pretty good idea for a stool, which never occurred to me before. I'm hoping to visit this week.

    BICAS - Out of Tucson, AZ.

    Bicycle Inter-Community-Art/Salvage

    Brief History

    BICAS started in late 1989 as an organization called Bootstraps to Share. A group of like-minded community members came together to assist and empower the homeless population in Tucson, helping folks attain work, shelter, food, and transportation. Over the next few years, the organization focused on sustainable transportation as a requisite for sustainable work, determining their greatest impact was to provide recycled bicycles and the skills needed to maintain them. In that same period, youth became interested in the bicycle mechanics programs. Thus, BICAS in the way we know it today came into existence around 1994, although the name “BICAS” wasn't used until 1996. We have since extended our bicycle recycling, advocacy and education programs out to the entire community. Since our founding, we have trained thousands of youth and adults in the trade of bicycle repair, maintenance and safety, and restored thousands of bicycles, saving them from the waste stream.



    A wonder of a place.

    Looks like they modified their website and removed the link. However, here's the home page.

    I just started reading this website, and I think the concept of bike collectives is a great concept that should occur in all major American cities. I live in the DFW area, and a friend, bike wrench and former LBS co - owner (they closed because business was slow, they said) wanted to establish a bike co - op, but, due to forces that drove them put their idea of a bike co - op on the back burner (lack of business, and the need to sell bikes because a small minority of people use bicycles as transportation) they were steered away from establishing the first bike co - op in Fort Worth, Texas. Sadly, the store went out of business. It was a shame because he and his business partner have great karma which led to establishing one of the nicest LBS' in the city.
    I later asked co - owner Mike if the bicycle commuter community in Fort Worth grew in numbers, thereby, making it a stronger, significant transportation community would their LBS remain open? His answer, "I don't know."
