Cheap thrills

I just spent the best $1.43 I've ever spent.

Got my bike seat stolen *again* today. Rode with my ass in the air to the nearest bike shop, who had seats, but no seatposts that would fit my bike. They directed me to another shop, who had both seats and posts, and for $15 total I could ride sitting down again. They also referred me to a local hardware store, who for said $1.43 sold me 3' of 5/32" stainless steel cable and two aluminum ferrules, and loaned me a hammer and a small anvil. My bike seat is now not moving more than 16" from my bike frame ever again.
