SBWC bike club's first meeting

Syracuse Bicycle Works moved from the digital world to reality. We had our first club meeting yesterday in the community room at Mundy Branch Library. The founding members are: Angel, Brian, John and Edward. Juan Cruz, artist in residence for the Salt District of the Near West Side also came to visit us.
We fixed up minor problems on Brian and Edward's bikes, and started working on building a path racer together.

English, Spanish and French were spoken, but mechanic is our common language. Some of the kids don't have bikes yet. So, as we talked about recycling, their first mission is to look around for a trashed or donated bike that we'll fix up and customize together.
