I'm going to leave Round 29 open for a while. Only 7 offerings so far. Jeesh. I'm abandoned with a bicycle that needs hosed off. Such a cruel world!

Anyway, any further answers will work.

Hey! I was just having a peak around the back of Sara's house and look what I found. The pedals are a bit sticky (ewk) but apart from that it seems more or less ok. Anyone know who she pinched it from?
