    What goes around comes around

    I tried to go to n-1 bikes. And I failed.

    I gave away my Free Spirit beater bike on the 2nd. This morning another bike appeared on my doorstep. As I was launching my bike to go to work, I saw a neighbor struggling to get a chest of drawers into his car. He was obviously moving. He motioned to me and had me come over. I thought he wanted help.

    Turns out he had a Murray Cruiser with a frame that he had custom painted. And he was giving it to me because he knew I would give it a good home. It seems to be in reasonable shape though it is missing its wheels and hasn't got fenders. So I guess I've gone from n-1 back to n.

    There are some universal laws that just can't be broken. You've found one of 'em.
    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    Is a bike that is missing its wheels still a bike? I'm not sure you ARE a lawbreaker.
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    Got my new N + 1 bike today, off Craigslist. Raleigh alum. frame that was "used for one trip to Maine" but the seller later admited he used to be a bike messenger! Totally beat but a box of parts that included a new Deore front der. and (all I really wanted) a set of 105 9 speed shifters.

    Oh I almost forgot the most important thing. A Freddie Kruger decal picture on the headtube. Very nice.

    Starve a terrorist - ride a bike to work. It's not just good for the environment, it's good for civilization.
