Out here in the country(texas)there is a couple of second hand stores that take donations(people helping people and The boys and girls club)....They both have tons of biclyes lined up for 5 to 10 buck and if they dont sell them within a couple weeks they put them in a free pile with furniture and what not....If I was to start collecting all the bikes they give away my yard would look like a bicyle graveyard....I bought 2 beachcruisers from them for 5dollors each(im not much into the mountain bike look for my motorized bicycle setups)they have tons of name brand mountain bike and street bikes though....
IF I CANT FIX IT,IT ISN'T BROKEN!....ummmmmmm so I thought....
