First-determine the amount needed to set up a brick and mortar location. Post that as a goal via signage. Note that bike shops in your Metropolitan Statistical Area charge X$/hr. Ask for a comparable donation for services rendered. Some will pay more and some will pay less, according to their means or inclination. I use the Barnett Ultimate Flat Rate Guide @ $30 a flat rate hour. That is about 1/2 of what a for profit shop charges, in my estimation. In bigger cities, rents are higher, ergo labor costs more.Sent from my Galaxy Tab® E-------- Original message --------From: Sue Plummer <firstname.lastname@example.org>Date: 4/23/18 8:19 AM (GMT-06:00)Subject: [TheThinkTank] "payment" for pop-up repair sessionsHI Folks,I'm part of a start-up effort in an urban neighborhood in Cincinnati. We hope to have our own shop, one day, where we will rebuild and sell bikes, affordably. In the meantime, we have pop-up repair sessions (2 Saturdays/month) planned for the spring/summer, this year.We did a few of these part of last summer, but didn't charge anything. I am not completely comfortable with that, and would like to ask clients to offer something in exchange. i'd love any ideas about this.Thanks!Sue PlummerWheelHouse Cincy
