[TheThinkTank] Bike collectives that run in commercial bike shops

In the many months before opening our own sm all coop, I broached this
topic with a bike shop owner - more as a joint venture sort of concept but
where both models would coexist. He explained how the two concepts would
not work together because of the big difference of profit and prices. His
perspective made sense so we chose our own path. We have remained good
friends and in fact do a few things together - we get parts and supplies
from him and we get some good used bikes for his operation. We also cross
refer customers when it males sense, which is very often.

Hope this is helpful.
