One of our favorite bike projects to date! And one of our most satisfied customers who got to see his dream bike come alive. We started with a used Marin frame that was donated and Michael had it professionally repainted. He brought it back to us and we built it up for him using a mix of new and used parts. It's a speedy, light, yet comfortable hybrid with great lines. And check out that fork! Very cool.
For the third week in a row, the Sonoma Farmers Market bike valet filled to capacity! This partnership between the market, the Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition and Teen Services Sonoma has grown steadily over the past three years and is hitting its peak. Come visit us next week! Same time, same spot. Thanks for the support.

|Ok, that's enough bikes. We're out of space!|
Martin Velazquez and Jose Napoles both presented their senior projects this week in front of judges at Sonoma Valley High School. The two became the fourth and fifth seniors to chose bicycle-related projects and work with us at Operation Bicycle. This year, both Martin and Jose chose to take bikes that had been donated, strip them down to the frame, overhaul and/or replace all parts, and then put them back together. Congrats, guys! You both showed great perseverance!!
