N + 1 and N - 1

Got my new bike yesterday and spent last night and this morning getting everything assembled and adjusted. Sorry there's no white garage door but it's raining and I don't have a garage anyway, just a carport. So I hope a white front door will work.


Sadly I decided to sell my other CX bike. But I don't feel bad. It went to a young cyclist who will use it to commute to work. He said his commuter bike was stolen recently.

I'm sure you did not mean to make that rather obvious assembly error which will render the bike unsafe at any speed, send it to me and I will fix it for you and test it to make sure it functions properly. I should have it back to you by May.

No, but I did throw in a pair of brand new 700x28 Vittoria Randonneur Cross tires. The bike had 700x30 Michelin Mud2 cyclocross tires. Not the best for commuting.

Shouldn't the title be "N and N - 1"?

No. The Kona Jake arrived on Saturday morning. The Giant was sold late Sunday afternoon. So for over 24 hours it was N+1.

The outside of the front door is red. That wouldn't do at all. You wouldn't be able to see the red bike in front of a red door.
