For those who do not already know... Davis, CA is a bicycle-centric town. Since it is topographically flat and a college town, bicycles are almost the preferred mode of transportation. And on the college campus they are totally the preferred mode of transportation. Based on a recent campus visit with my college bound daughter many students just abandon their bikes at the end of the year. Thus the biannual auction of over 400 bikes.

Expect a bias towards the low end of bike hardware though as students are encouraged to reduce theft by riding the cheap stuff. Not to mention the proverbial student budgets.
