In Des Moines, we're pretty excited about moving from our current space (about 1,500 sq ft) to new leased space being built for us--a comfy 3,500 sq ft.
I suspect in coming weeks, I'll fire off a few questions requesting ideas about bike storage, wrench stations, and retail/display space.
One immediate question regarding plumbing requires our attention in the next week: How we will wash/spray down grungy bikes. (We offer this as a service for members and first step in refurbishing bikes.)
We currently have a bike bath, a custom sheet-metal tank measuring about 18 inches wide by 60 inches long. We're thinking about getting rid of the bike bath and switching to a bike shower area.
Plumber needs to know what we're thinking
So, what works well in your community bike project?
Any photos and measurements to share?
Thanks for your help!
