Found a seated bike, minus the bike

Yeah I found just a bike seat. It was in the middle of the playa on the night the man burned. Tell me the color of the top and bottom, and post a picture of your seatless bike, and we can get in touch.

A bike seat?

Oh fuck. The playa is a fucking SEA of abandoned bikes right now! You can have all the seats or complete whole and new-but-dusty bikes you want. They are literally lying in piles. Many piles.
I'm assuming it's from people flying in, buying them in Reno, using them for the week then "donating" them. At least a fair percentage are the correct Huffy beach cruiser that can be turned into yellow bikes.

Any Mongoose Beasts?
Wait. I'm 3,000 miles away.

No... somehow those all got taken care of- and if there were any of those abandoned they would be on my trailer right now! But I did ride a few... Tiahaar brought one. Turns out they are pretty damn good playa bikes. They do float through the soft patches.

I love mine for around town. If I don't like how the traffic is unfolding, I just ride up the curb and over whatever ground is there.

Might see some Beast sales in the Walmarts in Reno that were stocking them pre-Burn, if there were any left unsold.
