We got this in the mail today:

"Great article in the Orlando Weekly! You guys are amazing...and may be just who I've been looking for.

I need help from Mike or Ryan or one of your bike builders, or maybe just advice. I'm just back from Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where I bought and shipped home a used cyclo, photos attached. It won't climb any incline at all, may need a new pedal assembly (not standard parts in USA, I'm sure). I can't figure it out the problem, and when I do, I can't weld. Bicycle shops are useless for non-standard things, in my experience. They're clueless on third world stuff, it's just not their line of work.

I'm guessing that your downtown neighborhood might be Thornton park. I live real close by. If anybody could give me at least a consultation, I'd sure appreciate it. I could make a donation.

Please give me a call or email. Being old, I couldn't figure out how to work the blog.
