04:57 pm - sliding scale, DIY bike wrench org lookin for a new spot The Bike Shack (bikeshack.org) is a volunteer-run, donation-funded place that helps people learn to fix their bikes and provides tools for community use on a sliding scale. We welcome just about anyone to come in and use our tools, ask us questions, or look for used bikes or parts (available by donation).
After about 6 years of doing this, we're trying to find other places The Bike Shack can operate. The following would be nice in a fun bunch. Any offer that includes these I'll most likely eventually take a look at:
-A secure space the size of about a single car garage (~260 sq ft, at least 10 feet wide), in Seattle, about East of I-5 and North of the canal -Enough electricity for lights, a radio, and the occasional small power tool -A hard and flat finished floor (concrete is ideal) -Access to a toilet and running water -A lease costing up to $250 per month, but preferably less
