To use a bike you have to put the TV remote down and the popcorn and Cheetos keep blowing out of the basket rigged to the handlebars. When a TV mount and dish antenna for bikes is invented and gasoline goes to $10/gallon, we'll see a change. Art Link,Cheetos in the nose-bag,San Antonio,TX,USA

I don't believe that they could be worth a fortune John. That takes willing buyers and there are just too many bikes around for the number of potential buyers.

Riddle: Everyone knows how to ride a bike, so how come so few actually use the damn things???
