Welcome to the Grease Rag family, Grease Pit! It is about time we joined forces, considering so many people confuse our two groups because of our similar names. =]
Third Sundays, 12-3p
Grease Pit Bike Shop
2750 Bloomington Ave. S., Mpls
The Grease Pit is a volunteer-run bike shop that teaches bike building, maintenance, and repair in order to promote self-sufficiency, free mobility, and a mode of transportation that does not require fossil fuel.
We provide tools, stands, used parts, advice, and bikes – from fully built to just bare frames. You provide the rest.
We are a community workspace, not a professional service shop; we will not fix your bike for you, but we will teach you to do it yourself.
No one gets paid at the Grease Pit. The project is run by a collective of volunteers who do the day-to-day work of keeping the shop open. Anyone can become a volunteer -- ask us how.
Calla is going to be facilitating this monthly event, and is excited to host some WTFs!
