284: Curb alert

I did a Craigslist "curb alert" today for an old bike we've had in the garage for years.  It used to be my mom's, but she quit using it when a dent in the chain ring started making the chain fall off anytime you tried to change gears.  I stuck it out by the mailbox after lunch and it was gone in about ninety minutesI don't know if Craigslist people even got a shot at it, or if someone in the neighborhood picked it up.  I'm still shocked it was gone so quickly.  Never underestimate the allure of the word "FREE" on a piece of cardboard.
