My Bike
I got it about 8 months ago for 30 yuan, roughly $4.25. I was going to fix it up, but thought "nobody buys a 30 yuan bike to fix it up!" So I paid the nice guy down the street 4 yuan (additional roughly 60 cents) to patch and air the tires. Then a 15 yuan bike lock, which added 50% to the price. (But my Chinese friends tell me "Maybe nobody steal your bike!" and start calculating what the price of the metal would be once melted down). I didn't need to add a bell because the breaks shriek like a horn whenever I stop to let everyone know I'm about to hit them, which is good because it doesn't stop fast. It has a gear, which is good at about the speed of decent run on flat ground, but not efficient otherwise. The basket is convenient for putting things in. Apparently I can carry a passenger on the back. The tires are old and cracked and there's not much tread left. It rattles, squeaks, and shakes alarmingly at all times, and parts look a little rusty. The seat is so hard and poorly shaped it seems in danger of changing my gender... I have have gone on streets, off streets, and through mud with it, and almost died on it several times in traffic.

The basket i bought for me (despite HATING front baskets- if they aren't Frame Mounted they totaly screw with steering and balance) didn't fit on my MTB, but it fits on the Bianchi! I stole it back from the M8's bike. I've ordered a rear rack with nice curvy lines, once it arrives I'll use my Basil baskets and give this front thing back. Seriously, go rear rack always, front baskets look okay but are such a pain.
