Best $10 Bicycles - 2013
San Francisco Yellow Bike Project
At the end of the day – and at the beginning of the commute hour, and during the grocery shopping time – it's about numbers, as in how many people are out on bicycles. That's why anyone is welcome and free to take their rig to the volunteer-run shop on Division Street – and why anyone with $10 can buy a volunteer-assembled rig from donated parts. A small donation covers the time required to show you how to adjust your own brakes and get you back on the road safely. If you have no bicycle knowledge, rejoice: you are an ideal volunteer, and eligible for free instruction in repair and maintenance.
