My childhood bike

Illustration for article titled My childhood bike

God I miss it. My neighbor bought it new in 1993 (pic above was from 2012) and was giving it away for free. It was in perfect condition, just needed a tube for the front tire. I rode that thing everywhere. I rode it to school every day (including the rain), around the nearby university campus, and some trails.


Sadly, someone broke into the garage and stole it after 3ish years of owning it. It got replaced by a crappy Schwinn since my parents didn’t want to spend money on a bike “only for it to get stolen.”


edit: It was also my only form of exercise, and I hated the Schwinn so much I quickly gained weight.
