That's interesting. My town doesn't have a co-op either, and I've been trying to guess whether my local LBS's would see it as competition or not. I suppose LBS owners might also see it as a way to take care of customers who they can't profitably service, i.e. the penny-pinching cheapskates like me who want to do their own wrenching and keep their cheap bikes running forever? A way to engage people in biking who may not be able to buy new bikes yet, but who may come back around later to buy new at full fare?

Good on you for taking the initiative. I hope you keep us posted on your progress.
