I suspect on the CR group their are more than a few US bicycle industry insiders.

Can a few of them get off their you-know-whats and donate some serious dollars to get the Hall of Fame into some new digs? If 10 major players could donate 4K per year each, I'll bet that would go a long way towards paying the rent.

And some minor players too perhaps? If some majors can come on board and get them close, Rene Herse Bicycles Inc/Boulder Bicycle will happily donate a couple of thousand thousand. Which is a big amount for us compared with 4K for Trek, Specialized, Giant, and the rest. Lets all join it!

Just a thought!
