    Now I see why you are shopping for a work bench!
    What you need to do is hook up with somebody who fixes up old bike racks, took chests, parts organizers, and gives them away for free.

    Thanks, folks.

    A friend is going to help me set up the workshop. I just did a fixed gear conversion for him, and I'm giving him a bike to give to his friend.

    Yes, Booger the cat lives up to his name. He's feisty at some moments and affectionate at others. He thinks he's a dog, so he goes on walks with the dogs and me. He's a total clown. My daughter named him and our second dog, Waffle.

    This is soooo cool! Congratulation on recognition well deserved! What you do is truly amazing. Reviving bikes and giving them to people who need them is remarkably selfless and awesome of many levels. My highest respect to you.

    Not truly selfless. Lately, I've been accepting money. I still give bikes away for free or at well under value when someone can't afford to pay. I sold a bike to a grad student for $50 where I would estimate the true value at $150. She was very happy, and I was glad to see her riding a bike once again.

    I also just founded the South Orange/Maplewood Bicycle Coalition. The web site is sinfully ugly right now, but it will look spiffy soon.

    Be careful what you wish for. That site loads uber fast unlike some other mutually familiar bike related site.

    dude totally inspiring. lately since i've become more comfortable with bike maintenance - i've been tuning up and doing major overhauls for my friends and my friends friends in the past couple years for free. just knowing they ride their bikes everyday for transportation and fun is enough for me. keep up the good work and thanks for sharing your vast knowledge...

    Awesome! All the bike clutter is one of the big reasons I love to hang out at the co-op

    Two articles? Are you issuing press releases or what?


    BTW, I enjoyed both of them... thanks

    If everyone with the skills (not necessarily to pay the bills) and the time did this then we could get more people out on bikes.

    Great work! I agree with the many other posts, inspirational.
