Exactly two months ago, we culled the ranks of our regular kids and pulled 5 potential volunteers. Their tasks: to help run the shop, keep it clean, return the tools to their proper places, and take responsibility for their time at KVIBE, that is, if they had a legitimate reason why they couldn't make it to "work," they'd have to call us and let us know. It started off slowly, but two exceptional volunteers made it through 2 months. In exchange for two months of volunteer work, they would receive premium BMX bikes and parts.

and Joseph De Sagun
pose with their new bicycles! The top is a Matt Hoffman bike; the next is a Specialized. There were others on hand to witness the completion of their two months:
David, who was busy aligning his new handlebars,
Ali, who was cursing at his wheel,
A very regal-looking Remo,
and Michelle's feet.
We leave you with this pic which in my mind is what KVIBE is all about:
