I am a bike rider here in Iraq. Here is a picture of me on my bike and ready for combat. This picture was taken just before a mission. Instead of walking to my Gun truck, I ride my bike to her. So far, I had to replace: 1. I'm on my second seat. 2. I'm on my third tire. 3. I'm on my second back wheel 4. I'm on my fifth chain 5. I'm on my second sprocket. 6. I'm on my third bike tube. I've had this bike since July of this year and it's been down more days then the days I've rode it. This bike is an Iraqi bike and it should have went to bike heaven, but I needed a bike and the Iraqi teens went home and brought me this one. Yes, I could have gotten rid of the bike, but it's part of a story now and I can't get rid of it now. Plus, I may just ship this bike home when I'm finished here. Here's the amount I've sent on it since I've owned it. 1. $90. - buying the bike used. 2. $25. - new seat. 3. $35. - new tire and wheel. 4. $15. - new tire and tube. 5. $10. - new chain. 6. $20. - repairs 7. $15. - bike helmet total: $210. Wow, this was the first I put this amount together and I've bought a lemon. BTW - the bike is back in the shop tonight, due to a chain breaking again. That will not cost me anything this go around. This picture is of the Iraq teens and me.
