I went to donate bikes this weekend to this guy who I thought collected them for kids. He first told me he did then he told me, well I do some diffrent I collect and fix them and sell them. I was taken back. How can you be a not for profit ask people to donate and then sell bikes. Glad I didn't leave my bikes with piss ant. What a chip on the small man shoulders. Anyone know where the one that gives to kids is located?

Don't let the build-a-bike program fool you either.Yes,they hand out alot of free bikes to the unfortunate but they also cherry pick all the top end bikes,if any,for themselves.....If you have any top end expensive bikes,you're better off selling them.
They give away everything they get. I have been a volunteer for several years. I'm there on days of collection and the giveaway. And I know bikes. Bikes of high value go to underprivileged children. So shame on you

No these people are good people. They help kids. Don't be fooled. I think the guy who the original post is about is just retaliating because his program is nothing more then him making money

I was there when the bikes were stored across from city hall and a large cube truck pulled up and unloaded around 100 bikes and at the end,a man loaded a bianchi and another nice bike into his personal truck.What was that all about?
Obviously he was taking them home......
Shame on you!

if you really want to donate your bikes, drop them off on schuyler street on a corner and they will be gone a minute after you pull away. I did that a cpl years ago and they were gone in 60 seconds!

You are all ignorant fools who know nothing about the build a bike program. Any negativity mentioned above have nothing to do with this program . This program never stored bikes near city hall. Also there is only one person that will come pick up bikes . He runs the program. Drop off location is in new Hartford and YES the bikes get fixed and given away at the utica memorial auditorium every year. The community doesn't pay a dime. I have volunteered as well and no one keeps the so called cream of the crop bikes for themselves , they all drive cars and will buy their own kids bikes with the hard earned money they work for because they are not scum bags. It figures some low life would post negative shit about a great program that gives back to the community. Get your facts straight before assuming that all people collecting bikes are affiliated with this program. This is a legit program and dies nothing but put on a great event for area youth and promotes wellness and gives kids the opportunity to have a bike because families can't afford to buy them. You people and your bullshit make me sick. So go ahead keep trash talking karma is a bitch

That's right the program is the best around! Bike recuse is a joke. I had conversation with this guy Matt from rescue. He stated to me that I should donate to his program. I asked what his budget was. He wouldn't tell me the bottom line, but he did say he had to pay his salary , rent utilities, parts and so on? I should give him money so he can line his pockets. I will be calling the bike build for kids.

Funny how this guy keeps on bashing everyone else. He couldn't come up with his own idea so he steals a idea from good people so he could make money. Beware of this shit bag
