Video: Motomethod Motorcycle Co-op

Tuesday, January 24, 2012
The local bike shop serves critical role for the riding community. It’s the place to get your bike serviced and repaired, but it’s also a place to shoot the breeze and talk bikes with likeminded members of the community. Motomethod in Vancouver, British Columbia, takes the riding community benefit to a whole new level.

Motomethod is a bike shop co-op founded by Paul Malowany and business partner Simon Travers. The duo run a regular motorcycle repair and service business, but offer open access to shop tools for Motomethod co-op members. The $100 annual membership dues include one free pick up/drop off in the Vancouver area and free tire changes. Members also get discounts on parts and accessories, including tires, and a $1/day storage rate.

Members can roll in to wrench on their ride, with Malowany and Travers available for advice. The shop also holds court every day with a group lunch. Watch the video below directed by the Zenga Bros. and embedded courtesy of Vimeo. Special thanks to Travers for bringing our attention to his co-creation.
