Editor's Note: At some point I really need to count up the bikes and brands of bikes Allen has gone through because it seems like he gets a new one every other month.  The link on the Acme Prince bike is to someone's personal photograph that is there for all to see.  Also, I think Allen had a reputation of being a bike man because the man with the broken wheel knew to turn up at Allen's door for a repair.
