We have a webstore on Lightspeed https://shop.bikeworks.org/ that we put up
at the end of March after we closed for a few weeks because of COVID-19.
it is tied with our inventory.   And we use ebay once in a while
for special parts and a few times for really special bikes.

On the webstore, All bikes are pick-up only with no test riding but they
can be returned within 30 days.  We are going to start a shipping option
all other items soon- currently they are also pick up only.

Organizations and stores here cannot sell on craigslist.
