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.
