Poll: bike repair co-op?

We have heard from a few folks that there is interest in expanding the Bike Recycling Program to include a bike repair co-op.

Here's the skinny: For a nominal fee, you would join the co-op, granting you access to the BRP shop, including tools and spare parts, so that you could work on your own ride. In addition to the co-op fee, you would also be expected to work a set number of hours per month as a BRP volunteer, refurbishing bikes for our neighbors in need.

If this sounds interesting, please answer the poll question to your right. If you would like to discuss this idea further, feel free to comment below, or email me.
