I have no spare cash to spend on a bike, and I'm not willing to finance one. I did have one I wasn't riding much any more lately, and there was a particular one I've admired for years that I wanted to try. I happened to cross paths with an inmate who wanted a bike like mine, and who had the one I liked. We traded straight up last week, and we are both pretty happy with the result. this was my first ever vehicle trade, and it worked out quite well.

I find trading stuff is more fun and interesting than buying and selling, and it's an inexpensive way to try new stuff.
