BMX bike.

I'm thinking that in a month or so, I'm going to bike to the Metro. But where to find a bike? I need a bike that can be rained on and perhaps stolen, so I didn't want to spend more than $20 - $50 on it.

I had heard in that in hipper places like NYC and SF, there is a cool bike called a fixed gear bike, it's a bike with one gear and no brakes. I figured now that's gotta be a $50 bike because it doesn't even come with brakes, but noooo, it's like $800! People, come on, that is just silly, it doesn't even have brakes!

And then I remembered in the basement, Donald's old BMX bike. Dusty and forgotten, it needs to be loved again!

OK, Donald, so what do I do now? Both the tires are flat, I guess I'm going to have to find the bike pump. And it's missing the front brakes...

Girl I know what you mean about bike costs! Josh broke his wrist riding his old one too fast down a hill. The bike was kaput. So, I've been shopping around and they are so expensive. Some more than my first car. For a 12 year old boy! I don't think so. But I've been doing some looking at pawn shops near UT and bikes are pretty good prices. Haven't found one yet but that is a good place to look.
