Not enough space

• The shop is located in the Academic and Student Recreation Center building, with store-front, public access.

• The Bike Hub operates within the Transportation and Parking Services Office, which resides under Auxiliary Services under the Finance and Administration Department of the University.
“We would have liked to plan for more space for both storage and retail. We store our fleet of rental bikes, 60+ VikeBikes and 20+ Linus, short-term rental bikes, two blocks away in a storage closet and have to send employees to run down and get bikes when they need to be rented. Additionally, we would like to sell full, complete bikes in the future but have yet to obtain this goal with our current retail space”.

When asked what they would change if they had to start things over from the beginning:
Mostly volunteer based, but have student workers.
MSU has a small space located underneath the Bessey Hall Auditorium
The shop is sustained by donations and volunteers mostly
