Handsome Doggie Porteur in the 18ème

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012
This is a handsome bike. I think it might be a Pista from before they started clear coating over the labels, so there are no labels. The components are mostly Campy, that saddle is the Brooks with the hammered rivets. Everything about this bike is thoughtful, which is why it is so odd that it hasn’t moved from this parking space in three weeks, apparently forgotten. It has rained almost every day, on to that beautiful saddle.
In three weeks no one has even touched this frame pump!

The bag is a Rixen & Kaul doggie bag.

DIY French Porteur

 Spotted in the 10ème, this bike amused me with its custom front and rear racks. I’m not certain how either of them are used, but there’s no doubt they’re custom made for SOMETHING!

The general view of the bike
Do the pushpins say ART.CASS?
 Here’s how the rear rack attaches to the seat stays. The blue bungies are just on one side.

The Things We’ll Do

Yes, this man is crossing the double yellow line. Yet he looks so handsome doing it, and I happen to know that he was crossing over to go to Flour Bakery. So you see, there were mitigating circumstances to his traffic infraction. I know people (in my family!) who fly across the country to go to Flour Bakery…

Wooden Rack Box

Awesome rack-mounted box spotted on Mass Ave. I peeked inside it and the owner had a bike helmet in there at the time of these photos. I particularly liked the wide leather straps, this was clearly a DIY project.
