As you may recall from your photographic memory, I took a photo of this shit steel bike back on February 25 and wrote a little ditty 2/26/21 about its level of shittiness indicated by how long it has stayed basically intact in the 98195. In late February it had already been there for weeks and the vultures had only plucked the brake calipers.
Fast forward to last week when some thief finally plucked the front wheel, a nondescript solid axle 27 inch steel hoop, memorable only for the presta tube oozing out of the schrader hole. Then over the weekend somebody perhaps in the name of art, placed a sketchy 700c 20-bladed-spoke wheel in the fork. No quick release, just sort of perched the bike there for the sake of appearances. Perhaps they did it just for me so I could take this photo and share it with you because we have nothing better to talk about.
