Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

It’s practically a crime against humanity that bike is just collecting dust. It’s also shocking that it hasn’t yet been stolen.
I noticed the same thing.

I thought "race bike" as soon as I saw no brakes and Wolber.

I would post up a note. Couldn't hurt but that tape job is terrible. They must have tried to wrap it realized they failed and said I am going to leave it somewhere and hope it never ends up anywhere and just bought a new one with better wrapped tape.

The bike is chained to the Trek. It appears that the Trek tires are still pumped so it's likely being used. A note on both that you're interested and want to talk with the owner could help.

You say that the GT hasn't been moved...has the Trek been moved?

I've been keeping an eye in both and neither has moved an inch. Both are caked in dust. The treks tires are flat but they're just stiffer and more substantial so its harder to tell.

So by my math that’s a bit over 100 notes. Do you want this bike or not?

a pad of pre-printed sticky notes and an afternoon. You’ll be golden.

Im not advocating wrangling out a “finders keepers” ownership of the bike, but considering the potential ‘prize’, that seems like relatively little effort, to be completely blunt. Especially if the owner still resides there, and could be open to selling it.
