We want wider access to more affordable bikes in New Orleans.

Quality affordable secondhand bikes are not widely available in New Orleans - and they should be. I usually search Craigslist to find used bikes, and often end up knowingly paying inflated prices, because my options are so limited.

Plan B is a great community bike-building shop, if you haven't heard of them yet. They offer Build a Bike classes, where they provide secondhand/broken bikes and all parts needed. You learn how to build the bike up again, and you can take it home at the end. It's pay-what-you-can. I did it a few months ago and love my custom secondhand bike souped up with flat bars and a quilted pleather seat. bikeproject.org/programs/build...
