It really does amaze me what people will throw away, rather than drop off at the local charity shop.
Still, at least it got rescued in time.
It's a sad indictment of modern society that people will chuck out something which needs probably no more than £100 spending on it, and with care will last another 30+ years, when you can't actually buy an adult's bike for £100
Something about knowing the price of everything, and the value of nothing. Oscar Wilde I think.
In the past year I've been to the dump about 15 times. I've picked up five bikes/frames for myself, two of which I kept and three that have sold for around £350, plus at least 20 that have been given to the local community bike recycling scheme.
Just think of the other 350 days I haven't gone and the potentially great bikes that have been scrapped!
