YOU GUYS ROCK!!! What a super cool way to give back. I know these kids will be influenced for the rest of their lives on not only how to build the machine they ride, but on the concept of teaching someone else a great skill. Big props to you two and the bike shop!

I knew somebody would ask about the Bighit frames. Herndon actually talked about the Bighit frame choice but the video was running long so it got cut. In short he said the frames were lighter and the angles suited the riders better than the full World Cup geometry of the Demo. So far the frames seem to be the perfect fit for the riders with no complaints thus far.

This is awesome. So many racers don't know very much about the components or mechanics of their bikes. Teaching the young guys will help them diagnose problems they might have with their bikes in the future and give them the knowledge they need to provide awesome feedback to their mechanics (or fix something themselves). The more you know the faster you can go!
