Correspondent Tom Wilmer visits with Will King, design engineer at bicycle part manufacturer SRAM’s San Luis Obispo R&D high-tech facility. King talks with Tom about SRAM’s open house on July 20 and its involvement with World Bicycle Relief, a nonprofit organization mobilizing people through "The Power of Bicycles."

The Buffalo Bike will be on hand so people can experience the simplicity of the bike that was purposely built for African villagers.
