    That's a cool story. Especially good that he was able to modify the bike that the guy already had.

    Yes, those are great, inspiring stories. Here's a video link to one of the gentlemen mentioned in your link: http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/...wheels-704319/

    (I had posted about that video earlier on another thread, as I had found it so inspiring & humbling as well)
    "If I ride, I will know the way the trees smell after the rain... My breath will fill the air instead of smoke and car exhaust... Road rage will turn into laughter and I won't be a boy or a girl, I will just be a rider...and the planet will cool down and survive and thank me for riding with flowers & glaciers & fireflies & snow days off from school... I will be strong... I will only use oil in my chains and oil tankers will haul chocolate milk" by People for Bikes http://www.peopleforbikes.org/
