    Cool, program. The guy who gave the bike up is a bad ass. Being a giver myself I know the feeling he had. Karma!

    I'm sure it was altruistic, and it's great that he got 5 bikes for 5 kids, but....

    I'm cynical. Most people don't realize that the winner has to pay the sales tax on these things, and on $10K that is not trivial - in Long Beach it's $1,025 - yeah, 10.25%. It's quite possible he didn't have the wherewithal to do so.

    No, I'm not taking away from what he did, just sayin' maybe there was more to it.

    Yet another reason to stay clear of Long Beach.
