I was thinking similar to this site:


Folks would post what tools they have and if there's any services that they'll provide. I think it would be a great way to promote cycling advocacy and education in small towns with no coops.

How do you mean virtual? Do you mean like shipping a box of tools around?

This distribution list is fantastic. I'm new to bicycle cooperatives but I'm enthusiastic to continue learning more so I'm thrilled to have a resource like this.

I'm vacationing in Manatee, FL. My girlfriends family asked for my help fixing all of their bikes and I don't have my tools and the closest bike coop is in St. Petersburg, so it got me wondering if anyone's considered a virtual tool sharing library for bicycle tools. It could be a great resource for towns which a brick & mortar bicycle coop isn't yet self sustainable. If I lived in a small town, I'd for sure host one.

Perhaps it could be a mobile application?
