Strong bicycles


Yes, it's another bike shot. This one just seems so Berlin  to me. The name of the shop is Bicycles out of Steel - they must be very strong and HEAVY! You'll find more signs at Signs, Signs.

  1. Bikes on the wall. We see them here, but can you imagine that even thirty years ago?

  2. Yep, that's why I'm all about carbon fiber and alloys.

    1. I have an aluminum bike, but I still find it so heavy! Probably why I don't ride it more often as I have to drag it up from the cellar.

  5. Hi Hal! Thanks for stopping by and for your nice comment. I remember steel bikes! One I had weighed over 35 pounds and was not easy to haul up a flight of stairs. These look like road bikes, though, which are probably lighter.

    All is well and I hope your life in Berlin continues to be fulfilling and fun!

    1. Interesting that you think that. Berlin is covered with graffiti.

  8. Nice photo, but I have to close my eyes for graffitis.

  9. Perhaps that bicycle on the wall belongs to Spiderman!

  10. That means they don't sell the more sporty and expensive ones. A normal day to day bike is from steel by my knowledge.

  11. Strong bikes and a lot of tagging. Tough part of town? Tom The Backroads Traveller

  12. I have rented bicycles in Denmark and Italy. A good way to see a city.
    If I had a business like that I would not have been pleased about the tagging on the walls :( I would have preferred some really nice street art ....

  14. That makes me think of my dads bike when I was just a little kid. It was so heavy that I couldn't lift it. That building sure does have a bad case of graffiti.

  15. Sorry everyone for the graffiti. But Berlin really is full of it, especially in the former East. Maybe I need to show more of that side of the city. ;-)

  16. Bicycles and benches: what can I ask more?

  17. Yup. That would be a Berlin scene for me too.

  18. I wonder how that bike is mounted on the wall? It looks amazing.

  19. Too bad there isn't much attention to cleaning up the graffiti. But if that's your city so be it. I too like the blue bench.

  23. I scanned all the signs in this photo. Quite an interesting mix - especially the 'no place for Nazis' near the door and a nice spikey cactus graphic.

  24. Steel bikes have the advantage of being relatively light while being strong. Many mountain bikers prefer steel bikes for their strength and lack of flex when ridden hard. High quality steel bikes are made of aircraft quality tubing. I'm not surprised a shop caters to those who like steel bikes.
