How did it get started?
Meet Jarius, the catalyst! Last fall, he came to Zummo's (there are no bike shops in Norristown) for parts and advice to fix his bike. With the staff busy handling customers (they are the best with kids) one of the regular customers acted like a Zummo, scraped up some miscellaneous parts and worked with Jarius (he did the wrenching) to fix the gooseneck issue. Knowing the bike was a little tired, we repurposed a "sitting around the garage bike" and few days later, the 7th grader had a reliable set of wheels!
