Hey everyone. We are sad to inform everyone that the bike collective will no longer continue as it was. We are consolidating our stock and keeping only the community bike project running. In other words, we will no longer be open once a week for repairs but will be running the community bikes by appointment. We are donating our stock to the TACOLY Bicycle club. They are a new bike co-op in liberty city. check out their website. We need everyone's help that available on Sunday Dec. 20th to help us organize the frames and parts for Tacolcy. We will be meeting from 4-7 as usual... It would be nice if we could have all the bikes out of the shack so they are all easily accessible.
-Dec 20th important date as it will be our final meeting date. ( Getting bikes ready for TACOLCY)
- We are still interested in doing work shops, bike rides, and any other fun activities you all might have in mind, so keep us posted on your ideas!
-Community bike project still running strong! email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment to borrow a bike.
-And check out TACOLCY Bike club.

Since our last post we have installed a door to our bike collective shack on the cheap! It had too be done... no more stolen bikes!!!! We are continuing with Sunday as our collective meeting/work day. This seems to be working out fine, thanks to our awesome member Phillip. Thanks Phillip. He and I will be alternating work days. We are always in need of more volunteer. With a good size COLLECTIVE the regular operating of this endeavor is no sweat. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer. Also our community bike project is still operating smoothly with only one unfortunate event...(((( Vincent Eugene: Last seen 07/17/09 with a Sun Cruiser, black )))). If you want to go for a ride or need to borrow a bike for short period of time, make an appointment to pick up a bike (email@example.com) Its free, its fun, be safe! hahaha
We are always in need of good/ usable tools and parts.
We always welcome new volunteers.
For community bike info contact
We also take suggestions. This is a community project, let us know how we can better make connections, or how you would like to be involved.

Lets meet, hang out, and make plans. We want to schedule work days, workshops, fundraisers, and a maintenance day.
Maybe there is a better day to meet? ( we want more people to show up)
Its would be nice to learn new skills. ( Maybe you could do a workshop)
- anything really
We still don't have enough funds to buy a tool set ( lets have an awesome FUNdraiser!)
And our roof caved in again ( we could schedule a day to fix the roof... permanently? with all this rain, a tarp roof just don't cut it! )
Tue. June 9th 7pm at the Firefly 219 NE 20th st
Come out and help create a sort of collective you want to see.
