As I was responsibly discarding a tubed behemoth of a TV along with a few other household toxins at the county recycling center, I noticed two bikes sitting along side the dumpster. The first, a 1997 Schwinn Moab needed only cleaning, adjustments and a chain. The other, a 1989 Specialized Sirrus needed tires, seatpost, seat and adjustments.
A $12 chain, two inner tubes and a bit of dabbling has the Moab posted on Craigslist.
I'm not sure what I'll do with the Sirrus. I'm thinking about keeping it for the kids. They maybe able to ride it next year.
Is this behavior early-onset OCD hoarding, or am I nobly adding a fourth "r" (repair) to reduce, reuse and recycle.
