REPAIRS POLICY AND SAFER SPACE AGREEMENT

This is Your Community Bike Shop. It is open to the public, providing a space for people to work on bikes, and to learn bike mechanics skills. Keep your workspace clean, and put back all tools and parts. Ask a Coordinator if you need help.  Always, sign-in/sign-out regardless of your purpose (status) for being in the shop, and if your status changes, sign-out, and sign-in with the new status. Understand our Repairs Policy and Safer Space Agreement below.

Repairs Policy:
We are all volunteers, and during shop hours open to repairs we will not repair your bike for you or schedule repairs, but rather we will help you do-it-yourself. At Positive Spin you can find work stations with tools, bicycle repair stands, repair manuals, reasonably priced bicycle parts, and volunteers with varying levels of experience in various areas of bicycle maintenance and repair.

Volunteers may help you diagnose, repair and provide instruction about your bicycle. You may discover that at the Spin even highly experienced volunteers learn new skills from others! If you have a physical issue or handicap preventing you from physically repairing your bicycle, we still want you to be part of the process in whatever way you are able, and we will gladly help facilitate the repair of your bicycle.

Safer Space Agreement:
As visitors or volunteers at Positive Spin, we agree to maintain a safer space. A safer space is an inclusive environment in which everyone can feel welcome, where no one is shown favoritism, and everyone can feel safe from oppressive, discriminatory and hateful behavior and language. This includes, but is not limited to, physical and verbal abuse, sexual harassment, or discrimination based on race, culture, age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, political beliefs, physical characteristics, disabilities, social or economic background.

If you feel anyone is not abiding by this agreement, please tell a volunteer or constructively confront the individual yourself. If behavior that violates this agreement persists, it can potentially lead to being banned from Positive Spin.

We Develop Community Bike Shop Software

Yellow Bike Database (YBDB) is a specialized software for Community Bike Shops (CBS). It is one of the most, if not the most mature solutions currently available for CBSes. Originally, developed for the Austin Yellow Bike Project, this software fork has taken on a life of its own, borrowing on the simplicity of the original software but adding many enhancements to lessen the learning curve, and bring it into the 21st century!
