So many bike shops have helped me out along the way, most of them without charge. The people working in bike shops are not working that hard expecting to get rich - they love biking and want to spread the wealth of bike-love around.

Community Bike shops are even more extreme; the workers are volunteers. I first learned about Community Bike Shops at Chainbreaker in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I traded my tiny little (flat black and shiny black with shiny red letters, lots of chrome and shocks, Oh my!) Magna mountain bike for a very tall Univega Visa Sport.

From then on, I searched for community bike shops, of a like mind. I use them to enable my journey. I have a lot of time, labor and skill too offer but not a lot of money.
