The Loaner Bike

Last week a friend of a friend borrowed one of my mountain bikes for a 4 day cycling tour of the Izu Peninsula in Shizuoka.  Last night he returned said mountain bike along with a six pack of Sapporo Black Label and a new set of brake pads.

This got me thinking.  I should lend out this bike to anyone who promises to return it with a six pack of beer and a new component, until it has been fully upgraded and I have a beer gut that reaches the floor.

Obviously this will only work while it is possible to upgrade a cheap component such as a cable, or the grips.  Nobody is going to borrow it on the condition that they return it with a new set of cranks!

But hey, its worth a try.
