a photo a day from germany's capital city
Bikes on the wall. We see them here, but can you imagine that even thirty years ago?
Yep, that's why I'm all about carbon fiber and alloys.
I don't like the graffiti...but if it was art I would like it. :)
The lighter the better for me!
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.
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!
This is quite a nice photo, Hal. I am enjoying my visits to Bicycle Daily Photo.
Lots of graffiti! Somehow that surprises me for your City! Love the bikes and the blue bench.
Interesting that you think that. Berlin is covered with graffiti.
Nice photo, but I have to close my eyes for graffitis.
Perhaps that bicycle on the wall belongs to Spiderman!
That means they don't sell the more sporty and expensive ones. A normal day to day bike is from steel by my knowledge.
Strong bikes and a lot of tagging. Tough part of town? Tom The Backroads Traveller
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 ....
How sad about the graffiti!
... for the weak at heart?
I like the blue bench ;)
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.
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. ;-)
Bicycles and benches: what can I ask more?
Yup. That would be a Berlin scene for me too.
I wonder how that bike is mounted on the wall? It looks amazing.
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.
Oh they musy be very heavy :). nice find!
The bike on the wall caught my eye.
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.
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.
Thanks for visiting my blog. I love hearing from you!
