An old Crappy Ten Speed Commuter

First trip to NYC in the New Year by way of the Park City. First thing I noticed between the garage and the station is that the bike racks were moved off the street. Was this done because it was winter and the snow plows would be throwing snow on the bikes when the streets were plowed? Or was it more of an aesthetic move to take all the sexy, flashy station bikes away from the public eye and hide them behind the station building? I think the latter. Of course, now it's an open invitation for vandalism - smooth move Mayor Finch!

This Ross Ten Speed looks like it did when it was probably brought home from the bike shop twenty years ago. Perfect specimen for a fixed gear conversion and reminded me I have a Ross hanging from the ceiling awaiting conversion.
