My garage is full of bikes in different states of disrepair.
Most need tires and tubes, repairs, etc...
To the prior owner the cost of the needed repairs outweighed the value and
they were discarded.
Outside of Walmart (China) where do you buy tubes / tires?
How do you prevent a carbon footprint on your consumables?
