  1. Does anyone else think that Bike Nation may be getting in over there heads?  Correct me if I am wrong but they have one operational station in Anaheim and have a contract with LA to build 400 stations in two years and now proposing 250 more in Long Beach?  I also hear Santa Monica may partner with them.

    I hope these guys are hiring like mad and know what they are doing.  It is nice to see that we may have an integrated network but as of now the materialization of that network seems shaky at best.
