    bike co-op in philly?

    my sis in philly needs to get a beater commuter. Any good locations for a decent working bike on the cheap? Could even be a singlespeed too (blatant attempt to keep thread from being deleted)

    hey, i remember bike church. Yeah, its at like the very west end of U Penn, where behind the church (hence bike church). They got a basement full of old bikes. If you fix it up yourself (which i recomend, it give you a sense of pride in it), its even cheaper than getting it fixed up by them. And they help guide you in fixing it, so its not like you're going about like an idiot
