sometime before Christmas I took pics of this Hercules on a grocery run. While the bike is not something I would pull out my hair for, the condition is rather noteworthy. A weird time capsule, looks like many of such were bought and never used, it really looked like it didn't do a kilometer since the maiden voyage.

thankfully it's parked a few feet away from a security desk and covered by cameras.

Walking the dog at our usual weekend loop today and I saw a guy riding a bike. This is in an industrial park with almost no weekend traffic and the only cyclist I've ever seen over there is me. He was heading away from me on the first sighting and I noticed he was wearing shorts on this very cold day. Second sighting was when he lapped us and I saw the old rigid Stumpjumper he was on. Third time I got this pic and did not notice until downloading and enlarging it that he has no saddle on the bike! Tough guy, or else taking his mind off the cold by concentrating on trying to not Laprade his ass.

Hard Working Winter Trek 1000

I locked up next to this T1000 the other day. He was using non-winter rated tires. Nice bell. I hadn't seen a Krypto lock like that one before. Either that, or it is the cloth labelled Krypto and not the lock itself.

I haven't seen anything particularly high end,exceptional or/and special whether it is at the railway train station or when going shopping in town. Most people ride mass produced Decathlon or old road bikes. The last time I have seen a nice bike was two years ago, a nice custom made Didier Louis in Reynolds 753 with Dura Ace.

It looks like a good reuse of that coroplast trash for the trailer floor too.

Not really classic, probably not vintage, but it is wild.


It looks old, which means it's actually working!

And yet, there it is, parked at a grocery store. At the top of a hill, no less.

I spotted this outside of O’Sullivans bar on my way to work yesterday. I’m not sure what this is, but the atmospheric conditions, the bike pointing east and the sun coming you know, were just right that what caught my attention was the Simplex shifters. Looks like a Marin decal on the seattube?
