- weekly update
Posted by Morgan White on January 12, 2016
Hello all, A lot has happened since the last update. We sold 2 bikes for $270, 1 build-a-bike for $80, 4 student memberships for $100, 1 community memberships for $40, and grossed $788.50. We received a truck load of bikes from Neutral, we received a truck and trailer load of bikes from a land lord, winter break happened, and I applied and got a Shimano account. We also had a lot of individual donations of bikes. There was even a very heavily loaded bike trailer of nice parts donated. We have had a few people in the shop fixing bikes about 5 a day. I have been able to build some bikes, and do maintenance. I did some work on the public repair pumps as they have been breaking a lot lately. I am currently setting up the cargo bike to lend to the library. I have scrapped about 50 bikes, 20 were sent to the recycling facility, about 30 have been cut up for space saving until they are hauled off. I did some reworking of the bike center's page on TBP's site. It now has lots of pictures as was suggested, and goes into more depth about what we do. I found some language on another co-ops site that I think will help set expectations. I worked on the registration data base and gave the University IT folks approval to start making the basic site.
This coming week I plan on dealing with the huge amount of donations. I will work on getting the cargo bike lent out and everything squared away on this. I will continue to work with IT to make the database and integrate current data. Since we got a new supplier, and the current supplier merged with another I will take some time to familiarize myself with the new catalogs and sites.
