Calling Colorado Springs !!

Anyone out there in the Springs ??

Anywho...I got this project going. I collect used bikes and fix 'em and
donate 'em to the poor. The response has been huge, we have about 30 bikes
in my back yard and I'm getting to the point where I could use some help.

If you want to learn bike mechanics or are a wrench already I'd love to
have a hand with this...or other type help.

If you have any used bikes or components you want to get rid of I'll
gladly take it off your hands.

Any help would be wonderful, or if you just want to get out and ride a bit
or yack about bikes, I'm into it.

Hey Dave,

I'm no mechanic, but would love to learn. Sounds like a great project you got going - always good to get more people on bikes! I'll shoot you an e-mail.

Dave -

I've got some old Suntour components - can you use those? When this weather clears (and I get back from my Christmas present trip...) I'd be willing to help out. Still need wrenches (I'm not great but I can do basic stuff...)?

Did anybody ever hear from this guy? I have a bike to donate and I e-mailed him, but he never got back to me.
