Reality TV show about bicycles based in Tacoma

TW has the wheels turning.

What you first must understand about TW, AKA Thomas William Smith, owner and proprietor of Renegade Muscle, is that he's the true embodiment of a character. The man talks a mile a minute, has devoted his life to the restoration and customization of vintage bicycles, and seriously digs calendar girls. He really, really wants to talk to you about calendar girls.

The idea, then, that TW would star in his own reality television show is not that ludicrous. Everything else about it, however, is.

From talking with TW, I learn that the basic concept of the show is this: TW takes under his wing a group of at-risk youths. He will teach them the ways of building and customizing bicycles and, when they have done so, their work will be sold at auction for charity. Felony Flats, it'll be called.

How on Earth did this happen?
