Of all the things I've done in my life, I think starting a bike company and inspiring consumer lust makes me feel the most strange.

Despite the weird "consumer lust," it's very interesting to see the lengths in bartering some parents will go to have their children forego art as a scholastic pursuit, not to mention the sense of entitlement some kids get. I say, make it a huge PR thing for Mission Bikes. When you fly in for the wedding, meet with the kid, take pics, invite media, and donate a used mission bike(or new). Then, write it off if you can. Cultivate the lust!

I got into Brooklyn Technical High School & Art & Design High School. Two great schools.
I wanted Art & Design HS. My Parents made me go to BKT. My dreams were crushed. [my bold]
How can you fucking refuse him? Yeah he may seem entitled, but damn he wants to be an artist, not a code monkey. A Mission Bike could keep the artist alive.

John is spot on about the PR possibilities. At the risk of being evil marketer...This could be a way for Mission to tap into the Asian and "ass stronger & firmer" BF market. Should you pursue, have someone take video to post on FB and YT.
