Over the past.......oh......12 years, I have acumulated quite a number of bicycles, frames and parts. The hard numbers..........well, during the summer months I scrapped about 40 bicycles. This winter the 3 big city swaps have claimed 4 complete bicycles and 8 frames. In early November I started selling some frames online and have shipped about 14 frames at this writing. Additionally, last night I loaded my van with about 10 bikes and 10 frames and hauled them into Chicago to a co-op bike shop. That totals 86 bikes and frames removed since late summer. In the spirit of full disclosure, I did pick up a handful of bikes and frames along the way.
