I hope the owner of this bike isnīt going to use it when he is going to work tomorrow!
The text and comments (so far) is in Swedish, but you can follow the bicycle day for day "waiting for the spring to come"
Wonderful "winterbike" in Sweden (http://www.karlskrona.nu/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=31&PN=1)
OK folks, can anyone translate the Swedish? Just the high points.
My German only gets me so far...
Not much to translate, really. They're posting pics of the bike in anticipation of spring and waiting to see if someone finally collects the bike. One of the commentators is wondering if water has been deliberately poured on the bike to enhance the appearance.
March 4th-7th, nothing much happens. There are no dramatic changes in temperatures, so OP intends to start posting a pic once in two days.
8th March however the bike has begun to thaw enough to reveal the make and the model. After that not much change.
March 17th someone thinks it's been abandoned (ya think?), the OP says he has removed the exact location info from the journal. You cannot tell whether the rear tyre is locked or whether the frame is locked to anything. That will become clear as temperatures get warmer.
March 19th, several degrees C on the plus side, less ice on the bike, spring is definitely approaching.
March 21st: a temporary backlash for the bike, -6C and some fresh snow.
Thanks for the translation Juha!
I'm going to do this with my bike...of course, I live in SoCal so it's not going to be very interesting... Shoot, my FREEZER doesn't even look like that inside.
