The Community Spoke is closed for the season due to theft

Hey everyone,Thanks so much for a great season. This has been our best season yet and we’re all happy and proud to have been able to do what we’ve done. However, due to a break-in and burglary at our shop, The Spoke will be closed indefinitely.

Tools, parts, and bikes were stolen. Please keep an eye out for a brown/copper colored ANT cycle truck (picture below) with a 20″ front wheel and a very large front basket and an older steel metallic turquoise Miyata mountain bike with an Xtracycle conversion kit. These are very recognizable bikes, and we use them to transport our tools and mobile workshop supplies to do free bike repair away from the shop. If you have heard anything about our tools or bikes, please email us at thecommunityspoke@gmail.com or call Alex at (910) 547-4843 or Dora at (516) 658-4224.

It’s very sad to have to close under these circumstances, but we will make every effort to reopen next season. Thanks again, y’all have been great.

Here is a picture of the ANT bike frame. We have every confidence that it will be seen around, as the other bikes that have been stolen from us in the past have been seen around JP.
Edit: One thing that we would like to make clear is that we are not involving the police in this matter. Please do not contact the police. If you are questioned about this, please do not provide any information. This is for the benefit of the community, and for the house.
