Default Re: Time to give up?

If you have a metal recycling dealer (in Kansas City, Kansas, USA, the place is 1153 S. 12th St. Kansas City, KS 66105) that takes aluminum, and you watch the line of vehicles going in, you'll see plenty of bikes about to be sold for scrap. (In fact, many bikes are stolen just for the scrap value of the Al frame.)
If you see something you can use that's not too deep in a load, you can make the thief, err, seller an offer easily more than the scrap value.
