He's very serious about his bike as his method for getting place to place. Gotta love his commitment to it. Rain, snow,subzero temps you will see him - on his bike. If he has places to go - his bike is what gets him there.
He picked up a rusted to heck green ten speed Schwinn, for $60 at Working Bikes Co-op. Someone had converted it to an 8 speed. Already that's a tad odd. He switched it out to fixed gear, added an aerospoke so that he'd never have to true a wheel again. Recently the bike got a new seat.
