    Here's one I see around town all the time. Last year dad drove the kids around in the trailer, but this summer they've added a trailabike.

    I like that giant. It's a great mix and match job of parts, tyres and components, living happily together.

    Poor "ecolab" dude had to double park. lol

    Messenger bikes. I love the Switchblades, but rigid forks on a suspension frame?

    Eco is just passing through. Only mail trucks stop there in the middle of the road. One way single lane road. 2121 Ward Place, the "Duke Ellington Building". Located on the site of the house where Duke Ellington was born. It's a USPS facility now. Mixed use actually but mostly USPS.

    Rails to Trails is also located there.

    This would be a better picture if you could read the painting on the wall behind him. It says ARISE.

    Should flip those drop bars around and get more aero. Also could use a 16 inch wheel, aka tail rotor, on the upper frame to create more stability.

    I saw him once before. He was gracefully dismounting on K at a red light. I had the green on 6th and was claiming space in the left lane in front of a tour bus in preparation for turning left on K. The tall bike rider shouted "F*** YOU BUDDY" at the bus driver. I thought that was really cool and it gave me a big boost for the rest of the day.

    Very much like most of the bikes here except for the locks.

    BTW, I think the mustache adds character.

    Many will run a cable through their wheels, in addition to a U-lock securing frame to stanchion. In this case, an additional 3 pound lock to secure a rusty (non-quick release) wheel? I noticed the locks, but didn't think about how unnecessary the second one is here. You could put that wheel on the street with a "FREE" sign on it, and I doubt anyone would touch it.

    The mustache is a cute touch but I think it's been installed upside down.

    I've seen one crank drive (edit: shaft drive) (coincidently on Vermont. Ave. a block from the highly secured rusty bike). The rider lived on a boat and bought crank drive bikes for himself and wife because he thought they would fare better at sea. He was not happy with the crank (edit: shaft) drive. I think it was a Thursday, he must have been going to the Farmers Market. The "No Parking on Thursdays" sign is there because a Farmer's Market occupies that block on Thursdays in season. Michelle Obama was behind the conception of the market, a few blocks from the White House, to promote eating healthy locally grown fresh food. Sorry for talking so much in the no talk thread, I'll delete this post after everyone has wasted a tiny part of their lives reading it.

    I like how they are customized. Toeclips and a narrow saddle for officer 5012 whereas officer 5009 prefers a 'comfort' saddle and bare platforms. The angle on the shifters/brakes looks very uncomfortable though.
