(Photo by Nicolas Picard)

The bike had always been handy. Every owner had been able to rely on it. It was impossible to get lost; the experiment had been repeated, several times, but still the bike performed its function admirably. As the news coverage grew, the bike traded hands more quickly. Very few tried to own it anymore, only looking for a profit.

Stories faded as it went untouched. Frank stepped in just after the press died down. He prided himself on finding an object of such renown at such a low price. He paraded it around, but not for long. It struck back.
