Yep, and the group can take credit for a lot of this:

The BCA frame was given to me by a local friend who's into REAL antique bicycles (nothing newer than pre-WWI, heavily into 1890's), the wheels came from the barn that wasn't affected by the fire, and pretty much everything else on it was the care packages the group sent me after the fire. It's my 'baseball' bike. Rather than pay $5.00 parking at each Richmond Flying Squirrels game, I haul the bike into Lakeside (about two miles from the ballpark) and ride to the game.

​​​​​​I've been getting tempted to do a mid-drive e-bike conversion on it, just to learn about the genre. Then again, I'm having no problems with pushing pedals, so why bother?

“No one in this world, so far as I know — and I have searched the records for years, and employed agents to help me — has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.”

H.L. Mencken, (1926)
