Since about a month ago, I’ve been spotting oBikes in my neighbourhood. However, because I am without my mobile phone when I go on my nightly rounds, I’ve never gotten a chance to ride one of these.

Until tonight.

I spotted an unlocked oBike at one of the void decks and decided to take it for a free spin. Maybe it was broken. Maybe someone left it unlocked to indicate to the next user that something was off about the bike.

There was.

It had no brakes. As it turns out, freegan living is pretty extreme.

Experimenting with food that expired 12 years ago, and today’s cycling around the neighbourhood without brakes, this is a really fun way to live!

Don’t worry, I didn’t take the oBike home nor did I engage in any negative behaviour. Heck, I don’t even have an account with them!

Estimated retail price: $1
