Garage Sales

I've sometimes gone to garage sales looking for bike finds. This last weekend I was out for about an hour hitting sales as I saw them in the St Johns neighborhood of Portland. I picked up a nice tap and die set but was striking out on anything cycle-related. I decided to hit one more sale before heading home and it was a gold mine! I had been looking for a decent bike rack to carry my bike and my wife's. On craigslist they have been too much money. I picked up a newer Yakima rack and one "raptor" bike tray (the kind where you don't have to remove the wheel) for $45. I need to find another tray for cheap, but for now I can tote my Peugeot wherever I like. Here's to garage sales.
