    reperpose/thrifting

    I was down at the salva and found for $2 a pair, some great pants for riding. Babseball pants. They're short, stretchy, breathable, good fit, and long wearing. I got 3 pair and I've really been diggin em. Anyone else find some other cool stuff to repurpose for cycling?

    I repurposed a track bike as a street bike.

    I've also been known to repurpose a messenger bag as a commuter bag.

    It's scary out here on the leading edge.
