Sometime ago I was disposing of some rubbish in the trash room of my apartment complex. I was taken aback by what I saw:
No that isn’t a view of my trash room, but that is what I found: a bike. I was taken aback by the fact it was in there, but also that it was in the condition it was in. Besides loose break lines and a little TLC, it looked to be in great shape. I looked around suspiciously, expecting to see a camera crew or that dude from ABC’s What would you do?, but nope nothing.
I quickly disposed of my refuse and walked the bike out of the trash room towards my building. My wife gave me a perplexed look when I entered our apartment. Knowing her thoughts I said, “I obtained this through legal means.” Kay-Kay came running up and said, “Wow a Bike! Can I ride it?” I smiled. “Maybe when you get a little bigger.”
I took the bike to a shop near my job and had them asses the necessary repairs. The shop worker estimated no more than $75 worth of work. I was pumped. I had been thinking of a way to get some more exercise, and wanted to purchase a bike anyway. I just didn’t know what type of bike or how much I should invest, so what better than a free tester.
Thank you Bike Fairy!
