The press statement says it all...
Publish date:


Cleveland, Ohio (April 5, 2006) On March 22, 2006, Ken Schneider, the owner of Schneider's Bike Shop in Cleveland, Ohio, was robbed, beaten and left for dead in his store. The assailant had robbed Ken two times previously and when he came back a third time, Ken sprayed him with mace and tried to get away, but instead was attacked and assaulted with a hammer, causing massive head injuries. When Ken didn't return home from the shop at the end of the work day, his wife became worried and went to the shop to find him unconscious on the floor.

In the time since, Ken has had several major brain surgeries and is still in intensive care in a Cleveland hospital facing a long recovery. The attacker, who had recently been released from prison after serving a long sentence for voluntary manslaughter, has been arrested and is being held on a 2 million dollar bail, awaiting sentencing for this heinous crime.

Schneider's Bike Shop is a generation's old bike shop that has been in business for several decades. Ken Schneider has always stocked a good selection of BMX and skateboard goods and is well known for his generosity, kindness and for just being a cool guy with a cool shop.

A fund has been set up to aid the Schneider family during this incredibly difficult time. Several bike and skate companies are raising funds through various promotions as well. The response by the Cleveland community, as well as the extended bike and skateboard community, has been amazing, but the Schneider family still needs help for medical expenses, loss of income and the related costs of the aftermath of this tragic event.

For one week, Props Visual, producer of Props BMX video magazine, will be donating 100% of the revenue (including the shipping) generated from the sale of it's latest release, the Road Fools 6/7 DVD set, starting Saturday, April 9th, 2006. Please go to www.propsvisual.com to learn more.
