Bike sign out

As the bike sign out (inventory control) person, your role is to sign out bikes and components and to make sure we have not forgotten to record anything. We have a LOT of components/parts going out with some families and it is easy to forget things. Considering the cost of even the smallest components are often the same price as the deposit parents pay to borrow a bike, we would like to make sure we get everything back in the fall so that another child can use it next year.
