Weekly Update: Fixing bike pump; fixing bicycles; student employment

Posted by Sarthak Prasad on October 18, 2021

All, Last Tuesday we had our Green Quad Day event. We had a few people stop by later in the week after talking with them and one potential student application for employment. We were also generously resupplied with clothes for making into rags. (Thanks, Morgan!) The beautiful weather was certainly an added perk.

On Thursday I picked up the remaining bikes from the warehouse that are worth our time. We’ll get to rehabbing those bikes this week. There are a good 20 – 30 bikes left there that are destined for the scrap heap. Unfortunately, 3 of the 10 bikes didn’t pass even a basic inspection so they’ll be fodder for parts.

We’re currently very low on used 26” tires. There’s a sentence I never thought I’d write.

This week I’ll also get the ball moving on fixing the outdoor pump, which is broken again.

The numbers:

Visitors: 40
Sales: $586.50
Bike (refurb): 1 for $190
Memberships: 7 for $210
Tires/tubes: 8 for $32
