|Found this beauty at St.Vincent's de Paul Thrift Store on Montana Avenue. $35! What a steal! It's a 3 speed, old K-Mart brand bike haha! For being a generic bike it's actually in great condition. I'm in love.|
Maybe there is some kind of conclusion to be made out of this post, but I'm not sure what it is yet. As I continue to explore Billings I'm finding things that I really like about it. That grimy part I described above? I went looking for it because it makes me feel at home. Reno's grit is what gives it character to me. If I were painting the picture of Reno as a human, it's gritty ugly parts would be what I would use as the defining edges to bring everything into sharp clarity. I think Billings tries to sweep its grit under the rug, but I'm still not too sure about that yet. Am I making any sense?
|Enjoy the bike.|
