The bare essentials

The other day I was at the grocery store and I saw this “longbike” parked outside. This guy (?) sure isn’t worried about either tight corners, or excess weight. There were three cables, five padlocks, several steel tools, silverware, a chin-up bar, and a heavy-duty safety vest nailed onto the back for visibility. Plus who knows how much those bundles weigh? And I thought I was a schlep. I feel like Tinkerbell next to this.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that bike belongs to a homeless person and you're looking at all of his or her possessions. There's probably a Coleman tent in there.
