    Heh.
    FB4K - This December, 2014, 5288 kids received bikes for Christmas. For many, it was their first bike, ever. Every bike, new and used, was donated, built, cleaned and repaired. That amounts to well over 10,000 volunteer hours this fall, just in the Twin Cities. Check us out on FaceBook: FB4K.

    "Why?" is the operative question.

    I think that it's a way of telling you that "This is our club and you don't belong."

    I usually frequent #'s 10, 181, 273 and 20. But I'm commenting here in #7, so what does that mean?

    I thought # 41 was Mu Shu Pork, Sweet and Sour Shrimp Combination Plate with Steamed Rice!

    Guess the 226 folk are my heroes. 261s are interesting. 41s where are you in a hurry to get to and I think your bike still weighs too much.
