Bikes of Toronto
I have started an essay Bikes of Toronto , being a collection of photos mainly of how NOT to padlock your bike.
Walking down the east side of Bay Street from College we have a series of bits and pieces. This cyclist forgot to lock the front and rear wheels.
Locking the frame to the post means that the front fork assembly, with wheel, can disappear just like that (searches for a snap-fingers icon)
Aussie cyclists arenít immune. Iím not sure how this bike was locked, but the thief has managed to get away with the complete assembly, and has left just enough of the ownerís national flag to seceded from Australia, so presumably a Western Australian.
Here the cyclist locked the front wheel to the hitching post, so instead of losing the front wheel, they lost everything BUT the front wheel.
Psst! I know a bloke who has a few spare front wheels, cheap, if you need one.
Another case of ďAll-goneĒ. Exactly which part of the bike did this user attach to the post?
The Toronto City Garbage Dump
More debris along Gerrard Street this time. 4166692360 is the telephone number for ???tinson. I shall draft a letter to their manager.
