    Where are you? Post where a bike co-op is and all the info on them, so touring jerks like myself can hook up when in town.

    No co-ops? Just bike punks or nurds? Just as good, post up so fools can gets the wrench on.

    Magic City Bike Collective in Miami FL at 1100 N Miami Ave, open Tu & Th 6-9pm and Sat 2-6pm for parts and tune-ups!

    Also the Miami Bike Scene is super active with group rides on almost every day of the week and an enormous Critical Mass ride on the last Friday of every month

    The community bike kitchen at the Jefferson School/Community Center is open Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m. at 1000 B Street, Eureka California.

    They have a full shop and tools for you to use, plus monthly classes on different bike repairs, and even have a women and trans only night. Awesome people!

    Bicas bike co-op in Tucson is great. Very helpful, lots of parts and tools. If low on funds can volunteer in exchange for parts and shop time. http://bicas.org/

    Another that I never fail to pass by is the Ft Collins community bike co-op. Great selection of parts and plenty of room to work. http://fcbikecoop.org/
