recycled cycles up in seattle, has something you need, for dirt cheap.
when you crashed last week, and fucked up your rear wheel so much that you can't true it past hitting your chainstays on each rotation (almost a taco), you go to the garage, grab a handful of old parts, and head to their u-district and fremont stores to check on trade capacity. two old cranksets, an old set of clipless peddles, an old seat and an old derailleur later, i was at a $7 balance for a "new" rear wheel.
don't knock 'em till you've tried 'em
even though i'm at the mills end of cash, i'll be rolling tomorrow, and had a great urban rambler to boot.
thank you recycled cycles, thank you good weather up north, thank you seattle.
