Who do you think would own a bike like this? Spotted in Petty France, outside the Ministry of Justice. Someone up to date in the cycling scene, a good dash of style.
Classy Brooks B17 saddle, clearly a saddle of choice. Interesting way of securing the saddle to the bike. It appears to be a closed length of cycle chain with an old inner tube to stop it rattling around. Seems a shame to have to do this in order to stop the saddle being stolen, also spoils the style of a minimalist fixie bike like this. But then, it is parked outside the Ministry of Justice…
And then you see the perilous state of the rear tyre. One more skid and bang goes the inner tube.
Perhaps hard times in the Ministry of Justice?
