Bicycle Oddities, Post your Pics!

i ride and walk all over NYC and the outer boroughs, and im always checking out what people are riding and whats locked up. Here in NYC, we have some wacky bikes.

Heres a bike i saw on canal street with a pretty cool saddle, made out of sheet metal! Thats gonna be fun in the winter

When I was a kid all my bikes came with vinyl covered metal sprung saddles with about an 1/8" of low density foam "padding". Then I made the quantam leap to a Raleigh Grand Prix with a genuine Brooks.
