While riding from downtown I came across a bike on the grassy strip near the curb in a residential hood.
Except for a few rust spots on the frame, it seemed to be in decent ridable shape. Inflated tires, oiled chain, nothing stripped and a reg sticker from 2007.
It's probably gone by now but I was thinking of going back in my van to search for and taking it if it's there. (I could use a set of "new" pedals.)
I think there are one of three possibilities.
1) The owner got another better bike and put this one out there.
2) It was stolen and left there.
3) A landlord found it and put it there.
What do you think?
What would be the right thing to do?
I'd hate to steal someone's bike by accident.
