Hey Happy, have you thought of extending your rear rack and put the tank back there? and yea, you were right not to go near that bmx. Jeeze, if they can't even do basic bike repair... But you could've charged more to get the bike in working order first eh?
Or break out a liability waiver, heh heh.
Lol RC, I had to go look up Lignin
, but I doubt the guy was thinking of organic polymers when he stuffed those in there, heh heh. Maybe some Oak, or Hickory would fare better... but not a little chunk of pine
