Hallo!
Well this email wasnt intended on doing a directory but it will be awesome!
We as a collective, and now a shop and workshop, since the beginning a till
this day have been running, operated by women and non binary people, and it
seems that is very rare in our city and in general.
It looks like in some near future, ajem bike bike in cdmx, we could talk
about this, yes?

saludos
R.
