Occasionally, I come across bike/owner combinations that don’t compute. When that happens, I try to figure out the puzzle. I spoke with such a bike owner today. He has a recently spray painted black single speed. I’m fairly certain it is a Trek with Bontrager stem/flat bar. It does NOT have disc brakes. It is a super light bike, I believe aluminum, although the guy said it was “space age composite fiber.” The wheel set is super straight, almost too tuned lol. It looks like the bike might have been white previously.
I will have access to the bike tomorrow and will discretely note the serial number. Don’t write this post off if your bike is another brand or color.
FYI – I work within the social services sector in Pittsburgh. Just because someone is poor, does not mean they don’t or can’t have a decent bicycle. Please know that a number of red flags must present themselves for me to post something of this nature.
