Colby was proud to finish the nice 20″ Trek mountain bike he has been working on. Trips for Kids furnished the helmet he got after he finished the bike, and posted this picture I sent them on their national Facebook page. Congratulations Colby!

When it’s time to remove stuck seat post from a classic Lotus mountain bike, it’s good to have some strong guys from the MapleStone school.


The seat post was clamped in the vice, and the crew grabbed each end of the frame and twisted side to side. It took a lot of twisting,  penetrating oil, and the sacrifice of the seat post, but the frame was saved!
