Conor’s bicycle

25 Oct

Despite what you might assume is Peru (judging from the animals in the background), this photo was taken in Berlin. A perfect example of what an awesome bicycle looks like to me: shiny frame, bull handlebars and, of course, a quirky saddle. I’m not completely objective here, since this bike belongs to my friend Conor so I guess I have more attachment to it than a random bike I found on the street. Conor changed this bike’s handlebars himself and I take the opportunity to congratulate him, because it looks great. This reminds me of the fact that I should join a bike workshop again (as I did in Sydney). I think I have forgotten all the mechanics I learned back then. And a bike lover is not complete until he or she understands the mechanics behind the aesthetics. To me, they both go hand by hand.
