LOL, I think that any Wallymart bike with a toy suspension fork is better off going down the chute so to speak.

Now some of target's Schwinn's, sold at roughly the same price point, seem to make the grade as far as being worthy of working on.
It's a fine line, usually decided by the substance of the particular fork that's on 'em.

I kind of cringed seeing that shredder in action. It felt almost like I was going in with those bikes, so merciless.
Can you imagine seeing some of the GOOD C&V bikes that get dropped into it? I'll be having nightmares now.

That would be BAD, real BAD.

DDD., great idea...I may have to try out, as I am running out of room with my current set up.

Those look like garage-floor joists, spaced 12 or 16" apart. With sliding hooks you can store road bike at only 8-9" apart.

That is really quite a nice collection of track iron!

There's a statement, seems we're programmed to have so much "need" for new stuff, and so little need for the old.

The rate of destruction of barely-used bicycles must be alarming to many, many people around the globe.

It's all about extracting the money from those who have it I guess.

On the plus side, this is largely about the economic incentive of recycling to support the mass-production of more bikes with little more than the infusion of "mere" energy.
