I think a central component of the "magazine" section and resource
library should be zines. They are almost always local, place-specific,
and grassroots. There are some seriously awesome zines out there -
about bike trailer construction, commuting, and tons more - the best
local zine here in Minneapolis is Dames on Frames, a feminist analysis
of the biking movement locally and globally. Microcosm publishing has a
great collection available for purchase (and it's super easy to set up a
wholesale account with them).
The other suggested books are great. I've been thinking for a while
that our shop should set up a resource library for folks to either check
out or use in the shop.
