This Space for Rent

Scrap metal

The recycling pile

The recycling bin this week includes two bent handlebars; the one that came with the Trek (which got bent when a car right-hooked me in Hawaii, but which stayed on the thing until I xtracycled it and needed handlebars that gave me room to get into the drops) and the B135 from the MLCM, which developed scoliosis sometime this year and were eventually replaced with the mustache bars I’ve got right now.

They’re aluminum and I don’t feel comfortable bending them back into shape, so it’s out to the recycling they go :-(
