Come visit Portland. Similar bikes are being sold here, now. No sales tax.

All the pictures look like they were taken from behind or from a distance. If he's going around taking pictures of women he doesn't know and posting them without their permission, that's pretty damn creepy.

He doesn't live in Copenhagen, and I've never witnessed him taking pictures of women on bikes where we live, creepy or otherwise.

Are these women being photographed without their knowledge? Do they know that their pictures are being posted online? If the answer is "no" to these questions, that's creepy. The "he" I was referring to are the photographer and the blogger. Who are you referring to?

If someone wants to snap a picture of someone, especially if their intention is to post it online, they should ask permission first. To snap stalker pictures and post them up on a blog strikes me as gutless.

Maybe I'm overly sensitive about this subject - who knows? But my wife and I were at the beach recently. I went into the water while she lay on the sand. A total stranger walked up to her and took a picture of her and walked away. She was understandably bothered by it, but there was nothing we could do. Who knows where the pictures ended up?

Perhaps you have a wife, girlfriend or daughter. Maybe you wouldn't mind it if a stranger snapped some pictures of them (without their knowledge) and posted them up on a blog. But I'm pretty sure most guys would be bothered by it.

Oh come on! If you're in a public place, you have to accept things like that. If you don't like being photographed, wear a burqa!

I feel the same, this happened to me once while I was running.
i always notice cars that pass me by, you have to when you run alone and I will notice if you pass me more then once, this car made a turn around to get on my side of the road, I hopped off the sidewalk and went to the other side, he came back around again, i memorised his license plate. he snapped a picture of me and I took off in the neighborhoods where he sure couldnt follow me.
I called the cops, the found him at the beach later snapping more pics of woman. creepy.

You people need to get out on Lake Shore Drive in the earlier morning. The bike path has some serious hotties that put these women to shame.
