how did we let Chain Reaction close?

in so many ways this program was a success
it may not have been a money grossing business
but that was not its goal
perhaps that is the failure of those in control
they misunderstood the objective
so they mis-measured its contribution

the mechanics alone experienced life changing experiences...

I am sure that this program touched many others
now more than ever DC could use this sort of affordable used bike shop!

I miss it mightily myself. Not only the cheap parts but what it did for the neighborhood.

I wish there was something like that when I was a kid growing up in DC. I would have lived in that place.
