Not What You Think It Is

What does this look like to you? Two black men hunched over a bicycle lock with a hacksaw.

Before you think a bad thought, like these guys are not bicycle scavengers, they are bicycle buyers. They just bought the frame from a guy who lost his lock key and now they’re hacking off the lock.

Personally, I’m glad this service exists. Better to recycle bike frames to a new owner than have it taking up space on the crowded bike rack.

Too bad its gonna take a few blades to cut the lock. I hope they figured that into their purchase price.
