my Ossi bike

I rode my bike today for the first time in almost a year.  It was  killing three birds with one stone — exer­cise, errands (with­out dam­ag­ing the envi­ron­ment), and pro­cras­ti­na­tion.  Every­thing was good for the first mile or so, but then the gears start­ed act­ing up.  One awe­some thing about my bike (yes, awe­some) is that when you backpedal, it brakes.  But it would slip out of its gear (it has three gears plus a “neu­tral” — yeah, I love it) and only the hand­brake worked.  Then it got more and more fre­quent to the point it was hap­pen­ing every 10–15 sec­onds by the time I got home.  My san­dal flew off twice, and I had to turn around and walk back to it.

Damn Com­mies.  Nah, I love my hap­py lit­tle Ossi bike.
