Bike Scrounging

Bike Scrounging
Thomas Arey | Make Vol. 12- 2007 | Pdf | 2 pgs | 1 mb
I'm going to venture a guess that many makers' earliest
experiences working with tools and trying to figure
out machines involved a bicycle. Eden today it's the
rare kid who hasn't tried to fix or even modify their
bike. It's one of the reasons I still have great hope
for humanity.

Cycling is good basic transportation, a boon to the
cardiovascular system, and most of all, fun! But have
you ever considered that cycling can also be free?

In the course of the trash picking and dumpster
diving I do to bring these occasional articles to MAKE,
I often run across bicycles left at the curb with other
signs of our society's tendency to toss away what
might be repaired or repurposed.
