I’m thinking that in a month or so, I’m going to bike to the Metro. But where to find a bike? I need a bike that can be rained on and perhaps stolen, so I didn’t want to spend more than $20 – $50 on it.
I had heard in that in hipper places like NYC and SF, there is a cool bike called a fixed gear bike, it’s a bike with one gear and no brakes. I figured now that’s gotta be a $50 bike because it doesn’t even come with brakes, but noooo, it’s like $800! People, come on, that is just silly, it doesn’t even have brakes!
And then I remembered in the basement, Donald’s old BMX bike. Dusty and forgotten, it needs to be loved again!
OK, Donald, so what do I do now? Both the tires are flat, I guess I’m going to have to find the bike pump. And it’s missing the front brakes…
