A Bike with a Reputation (PPB #30)
He picked up this rusted to heck green ten speed Schwinn, for $60 at Working Bikes Co-op.
Someone had converted it to an 8 speed. Already that’s a tad odd.
He switched it out to fa ixed gear, added an aerospoke so that he’d never have to true a wheel again. Well at least that wheel !!
Recently the bike got a new seat.
Yep, that’s a mutt… kind of like our pedal generator!
We’re on the downhill side of the blogathon… just a bit over five hours to go. The folks at Dancing Rabbit would be grateful for any donation you can make to support their residential outreach and educational programming.
