Bike NOLA

Cycle of Violence visits Southern LA:
In NOLA, there is a co-op of anarchists who take donated bicycles, refurbish them, and sell them for $10-20 a pop.
While on R&R in NOLA last week I purchased from them a Spaulding 12-speed with a light, lugged frame. The bike proved a delightful means of touring the French Quarter, traveling to the PX, and getting some much-needed PT.
Back at the camp in scenic Port Sulphur, the camp managers decided to replace my clinic boardwalk with a graveled path. The crew doing this pranged my front steps with a front-loader, and damaged the bike which was locked to the steps. So much for the new-old bike. Still works, but the thrill is gone.
