52 States in 8 Months

Goodbye old bicycle!

Now I only have to find a place to get rid of the scrap metal which was made in China.

PS: Some pieces of my current Korean bicycle also break apart. The front gear changer broke off (non-repairable), and as I told you some time ago, one of the rear sprockets is also broken. Then a screw from the rear gear changing mechanism came off. However, after I found the cogwheel, I was able to repair it.
At least I can still drive it safely, everything else doesn’t matter.

Unfortunately, the chain always tends to stay right where I don’t want it to be: in the place where I’m out of gear. And as you know, my front gear changer is completely broken. […]
