In various stages of (dis)repair

In the past week, we’ve been quite busy building out the the space — along with the Wipe & Lube party, we’ve gathered some friendly Commonwheelers to dig out the basement, donate bikes and bike stands, put up pegboard and tools, organized some of our miscellany, and (most fun) stripping about 30 donated bikes to assess usability.
