Here's a few bikes I've seen around London locked up in various strange ways, as well as some just plain interesting bikes. The one above was spotted in Soho, I still have no idea why it was locked up upside down, unless it was a prank...
|A nice Pashley princess with Brooks Brick lane panniers (not cheap!), |
only thing was that it was locked up around the stem! Removing the
stem with an allen key would free this whole bike.
|Some cool small wheel tandem in Chinatown|
|A Bakfiet spotted in Hammersmith|
|A cute Raleigh RSW in Brick Lane|
|Big bike rack at Liverpool St Station|
|And finally, an ex-Royal mail Pashley Mailstar|
|Sachs Torpedo 3 speed hub and a nice big front rack and basket|
|Royal Mail branded front dynamo light and drum brake|
|Made in Stratford upon Avon|
|The Mailstar has the rack independent of the steering|
which is the best way to bear a load on the front.
|Hebie Kickstand and SRAM/Sachs 3 Speed Torpedo hub with drum.|
Note the braze on reaction arm bracket.
|Note the thick 13g spokes and protector over the|
drive side axle end to protect the indicator chain
|This bike was made to be tough, kind of like|
the bike equivalent of a ute or van.
