While many New Yorkers dream of climbing the social and corporate ladders to success, this Citi Bike had a different idea.
Miles away from the nearest Citi Bike station, this simple cycle left the daily grind behind in search of a new, colorful style and better life in Brooklyn — like so many hipsters before it.

The bike was last seen resting in East New York on its self-guided tour of life.
A Citi Bike spokesperson did not comment on the lifestyle change, saying stolen or missing bikes are a "rare occurrence," but the New York Post reported that about 500 of the bikes were stolen in 2015.
The group charges a $1,200 fee to the last user for bikes that go missing longer than seven days
Customers can fill out a form to dispute the charge on Citi Bike's website.
