Just talking to strangers

I met Tony at the tip yesterday sorting through the dumped bikes.There's usually quite a collection there and we both had a good grumble about the culture of disposabilty  in which we live.He cycles over most weeks,chooses a half decent frame and then sorts through the others for the parts to build a bike which he then donates to charity. One thing we both agreed upon was never ,ever,go anywhere near a one piece ('Ashtabula')crank/bottom  bracket. After a few more minutes of chit chat,we went our seperate ways.Tony with his loot,me with the empty schlepper.
