Check out the lower left pic!! It boggles the mind. Charity bike build!

This is the first I have heard of this. I only wish I had the time to participate. Anyway, just the very sight of that many bikes in one place is enough to make you dizzy, lol.,,,,BD

Wow. And wow again. The bikes that were assembled at a charity bike build. It feels like mass production for chinese cities during war-rationing of oil resources, or something. Impressive.

Wal Mart must be sweating about selling $40 bikes down there.

They just had a charity bike build in Greensboro, NC sponsered by the local Hooters employees. It's only 80 miles away but I couldn't get out of my family obligations to be there.
