RUBARB (Rusted up beyond all recognition Bikes) is an all volunteer run space, which means no bosses, no workers and no pay. They all participate in making the space, tools and parts organized and accessible, and any money that is received goes toward tools and parts and all other basic needs of the shop. Their primary goal is to provide adequate tools and competent help to meet the needs of those who desire to build and repair bikes. RUBARB is an educational space where we all can share and learn from each other’s skills and experiences.
We met up with RUBARB while in New Orleans. While they were trying to recover and rebuild bikes, we wanted them to have a great web presence to help them find volunteers and funding. The site is built in Joomla with a custom template designed by Lowthian Design Works. We have also helped them with training and obtaining free website hosting as a non-profit.
UPDATE: Site completely reworked October 2017
