We recently lost our physical workshop/classroom/storage space due to the economy and are considering the concept of going mobile.  We already developed a mobile bike shop based out of a landscaping trailer (photos attached), however due to a conflict with our previous partner organization (the Univ of Maryland) and our main funder our mobile bike shop was siezed and its future is currently being negotiated by lawyers. Its really sad and ugly but we are committed to moving forward despite the loss.  We have now formed our own 501c3 in incredible time and have fully terminated our partnership with the university.  Anyway, I wanted to hear about anyone who has had success with a mobile bike program.   We are currently considering using a biodiesel school bus to house our operations as cheap space is very hard to come by in the Washington DC area.  Thanks for your input and ideas.
