I'd be glad to, Carlyn: Upcycles Bike Shop
<https://www.affordablebikesrecyclery.com/> is one here, I could ask James
if he would be interested; and I know a bit about hybrid models from
working in 501c3s that have forprofit subsidiaries.

> Hi all,
> I am involved with a local mobility justice group here in Tucson called

> (Familias Unidas Ganando Accesibilidad), which is interested in supporting
> a bicycle co-op on Tucson's southside, which is our historically
> under-resourced area. BICAS, where I work, is a nonprofit, so I haven't had
> a lot of experience on the for profit side. Would any shops out there in

> the FUGistas about your experiences, operations, challenges, etc? Perhaps
> even be willing to be part of a group call during which we could do some q
> & a with you and other co-op folks? If so, please let me know. Thanks for
> considering.
