    They Will Be Getting a Bike This Christmas!

    Just got back from a work day for the Knoxville area Angel Tree, and had a great time for a great cause.

    Spent 4.5 hours adjusting derailleurs, making sure brakes work and tightening every nut and boltů and making sure underprivileged kids are able to get a shiny new bike (and other toys) this Christmas. As some of us bike enthusiasts in my son's Boy Scout troop helped assemble the 120 bikes (my estimate), I kept remembering my own childhood and the indescribable excitement of my first bike, starting a lifetime of bike-passion.

    The point of this thread is not to "toot my own horn" but to publicly thank the hundreds of people sorting, bagging, and assembling the thousands of toys. And if there is anything like this in you town, please share your bike passion by donating your time assembling a few. You won't regret it!
