I recently spoke with Mike from World Bicycle Relief to learn a few things about the Buffalo Bike. This is the bike that World Bicycle Relief sends over to Africa where it is put together, distributed and used by locally trained individuals.
There is even a full time staff of locals who ride the bikes into the ground to give engineering feedback for research and development purposes. The bikes WBR donors (like you!) provide to these African communities get better and better all of the time.
