bike thieves get to go to a special part of hell, but the ones that steal my ****ty conversion from a sea of spanking new treks locked with pencil-thin cable locks, on the one day that i can't just do the subway ride of shame but instead get to do the freezing cold walk of shame... fhjasdlhafjksd.
stolen from 13th street and 5th avenue in front of parsons.
anyway, so y'all can keep them peeled:
black motobecane grand jubilee, with red accents. 53cm-ish.
converted to fixed.
chopped and flipped bars with white tape. white tape that is ripped to **** around the curves because i wiped out like whoa today on a puddle of... soap?
clips and straps. 39x15.
now for the super identifiable details section:
the front wheel is out of true... i trued my first wheel today! and i did an okay job, as post-crash it was pretty terrible, and i made it better, but also worse in a way because i had to use vice grips before i got my hands on a spoke wrench (i am such a special kid, i know this now) so it's got some UNNATTURALLY stripped nipples. they look like they got chewed on.
the top tube braze-ons are filed off. the downtube braze ons.... one of them is partially filed off and the other one is still intact. i got lazy. who knew this would be an identifiable detail.
on the electrical tape front... theres a red skull on one side of the seat tube, and a red heart on the other side. theres also a strip of red tape sort of candycane striped around the top tube, because i took it off of something then wrapped it around there for a minute and forgot about it.
i feel like a bad mom for never putting it on fixed gear gallery, and i weirdly don't seem to even have any pictures of it. this one's pretty much a dead ringer though, save for the bars. http://www.fixedgeargallery.com/2004/d/sip.htm
if someone tries to sell this to you, pick it up for me, would you? or just u-lock it and the mother****er to a no parking sign, and i'll deal with them both myself. thanks guys.
