Jennifer bought me a yard sale bike on Saturday. Here is what the model looks like brand new.
Here is my bike.
Looks good, right. Nice tires. Varying speed control. Comfy seat. I even like the color. Do you see anything missing?
PEDALS!!! No pedals. No chain. No axle. Who sells a bike without the mechanism that makes it go. I don’t think I will be going very far. A test drive was not going to happen.
We took the bike to the local bike shop and asked what it would cost to get it all fixed. $150 bucks. Dang. Jennifer paid $5 at the yard sale. A brand new DMX bike cost just over $100.
I guess the yard sale bike will be sold for parts and scrap metal. Better luck next time.
