Thanks Sanesh.  I really appreciated hearing things from your perspective. My kid had a similar shop grom experience to you, and he (and I) will always be grateful to the shop owners and employees who let him in the door and provided a supportive environment for him to thrive. He had the advantage of having worked on our own bikes with me for years and also being very mechanically inclined. Many (most?) kids don't have that privilege. I agree that the shop grom culture is pretty unique, and one of very few experiences where young people can learn and do technically skilled work. He has ended up pursuing a future in engineering, and I can't help but think the shop experience will help him in this regard.
