    They stole the chain on the first bike! I guess they didn't want them to wheelie it home.

    Cyclish, it's also sad what people are stuck having to ride due to zombie thieves. I can't even ride my klunker because I like it so much. good post idea.

    Seems like soaking a bike like this might be bad for it. Must have been really dirty.

    I found this sad guy at the bottom of a very steep section of stage 1 of this years EWS in Ireland... I have a feeling a spectator brought the bike along with them but then they buckled the back wheel and quickly realized that the bike was gonna slow them down for the day so they abandoned it here.

    This bike was at the bottom of a very deep ravine, under a narrow bridge in Rjukan, Norway.

    Looks like grand theft 8 year old girls bike to me. Did you turn this evidence in to the proper authorities? A possible lead to cracking the case may be within our grasp.

    This sad bike seems to still have all it's parts. The growing tall grass is hiding it from opportunists

    You can never have enough chains and cables. If you can't make it theft-proof, you can at least make them earn what they're stealing

    I don't know about your hood but if someone walked down the street carrying a bike here? no one would do a thing about it.

    That includes the cops..

    ^ I know every time I hike a bike up a steep climb with bike on my shoulder, many pass in the opposite direction and don't give me a second glance.

    A little over a year ago I bought a 2005 Jamis Dragon off eBay at a great price. The owner had been using it as a commuter for the last nine years. It had worn out slicks, no front brake and a el-cheapo brake lever for the back BB7. I think someone bought it, rode it for a year, bought another bike and swapped out most of the parts as it is all XT (stock was full XTR) except for the rear derailleur which was the original (rapid rise) XTR and it had a Specialized bar; and then sold it to this guy. I have no idea why it was missing the front brake.

    I fixed it up and like to think I've made it happy by getting it back on the trails.

    If they woulda just done one twist of the cable to go through the frame before going through the rear wheel, it woulda been good to go. So close!

    Yes, very sad. Just an opportunity to enjoy a handcrafted IPA and watch the rain. All's not lost.

    "Sad bike" just reminded me of the lyric "sad girl" from the song. So here I am, alone on a Saturday night, looking at broken bicycle pictures to Donna Summer songs. Life is strange. Now if you'll excuse me I need to turn on the disco ball and put on some bell bottoms. I've got a rug to cut.

    This sad bike is confused and not sure what it wants to be... maybe I'm confused and I just don't understand cruiser bikes (Spotted yesterday during my urban walk )

    The burning question is, will these bikes be cremated?

    Do sad mopeds rate?

    Saw this today dumped next to a dumpster. Stripped of it former very little dignity, possibly hot.

    Spotted in Manchester UK in the student area where you'd think there were always going to a few people walking past..
    I always wonder why the owners don't bother recovering the locks?

    This sad bike was discovered during my recent Saturday night ride. The next morning I did my run past the same spot ... it was gone.
