    Except for color all of those bikes look to be exactly the same size and shape, some have front and or rear carry baskets but other than that no real difference.
    So, what's the deal, were these seemingly millions of bikes some part of a massive recall? Were they part of some National exchange program I'm at a loss to come up with an answer.

    Ha! I thought it was an art installation, and I guess it has turned out to be several installations. What a commentary on where we are all headed. Maybe.

    For topical application, only. Not to be taken internally or used in com-

    Do not operate heavy equipment, unless you actually know how to.

    The irony is that these were probably all made in China.
