Your most Inappropriate Bicycle Pic from 2015

Most of you folks take beautiful pics of scenery, people, bicycles, etc.
Perfectly framed & exposed & photoshopped.
This is not the thread for those shots.
It can be a weird picture, an awkward pose, a truly funky bike, whatever...... just keep it 'G-rated'.



non-drive side view
mis-matched wheels/tires (and badly)
stem and seatpost not the same color
saddle and h-bar tape also different
what's with that huge bag on a race bike?

no panniers or basket to take advantage of FREE offers

At least we're out on the road - Sunny & 36F.

What could be more inappropriate than @photogravity and @noglider on a Bilenky tandem? Note the terrible towel behind noglider's saddle!

Of course, it's most inappropriate because it was taken in 2012 or 2013!

We accessorized Crank Addict's Peugeot after the DD. Appropriate at the time though...

Come to think of it, we're not sure what he carries in that Camelback he rides with.

Those Schwinns are not litter. They are slow-release fertilizers of a ferrous oxide. A small step toward restoring a good ecological balance.

@Wildwood thank you for this thread. There's a lot for me to live down. @somasanmarcos wins the thread. @Grillparzer, that ***** is nasty. I'm guessing someone lost a nice bike.

It's a medium grade Favorit out of Chech(sp) Republic. I pulled Suntour ratcheting shifters off it and an alloy girder stem that is totally seized to the alloy bars by a ferrous shim.

I spotted it this morning near work. Either someone lost one, or some building engineer took the easy way out trying to free an abandoned bike.

First off, I got all excited seeing that green Peugeot with two shifters on the right side! Not sure how he managed it, but inquiring minds wanna know.

Prior to that, though, I realized that it's the only time I've witnessed @noglider's legs! Hahaha

Talk about inappropriate! Many have gotten excited over my legs, but that's because those folks assumed that since they're big, they must be strong. Oh well.

@noglider - first off, I said the double shifters on the same side got me excited, not your legs. I said it was the first time I saw your legs. No offense or inappropriateness was intended.
