    Oooh, the ultra rare green Vees and matching shock gaiters... and I see they put just a splash of the accent color on the tires too, even a bit on the reflectors. That bike has nothing to be sad about, it's got style!

    is there anything else in Toronto worth seeing, or just the apparent crazy selection of bikes around the city?

    Why Are There No Child Bike Labor Laws?

    Day in, day out, indifferent to rain, snow, or shine, this poor kids' bike is on the job, holding its signboard around the clock. BRING BACK CHILDHOOD!!

    Yeah, it's a funny story. It is illegal in my town for unlicensed businesses to have a professional sign, or a sign at a residential address, or something stupid like that. Kids selling worms to people for fishing purposes, who happen to have a dad who runs a sign shop. They had a sign, council made them take it down, now the kids have a custom made "Sad Bike". Because that's not a sign.

    Even better, the bike comes with a coaster break. Apparently these frames have no capability to add either derailleurs or brakes. So it's a nearly 50 lb bike with no brakes but a coaster break and your stuck in one gear. Going up any hill would be torture and going down would be quite scary.

    I heard that 9 out of 10 dentists recommend this bike with handlebars set up as so. But it kinda hurts my back looking at it, too.

    Not a sad bike but an odd bike... spotted in Kensington Market (Toronto). Probably the same rider I saw this summer as not too many folks out there shreddin' ye ol' 55" Tallyho!

    ^ That is bad ass!

    Coincidentally I spotted this on display as a prop just yesterday. Not a real bike but I thought it was worthy to pay homage to those old rides. Try to ignore the reflection of the dork taking the photo. I tried not to do that, but obviously failed big time.

    Don't be surprised, Toronto is the most multicultural city in the world. 200+ ethnic groups, 140+ languages spoken, over half of the population born outside Canada, it's pretty special!

    Also, there is nothing sad about that Schwinn, it's a RAD bike!

    My bikes will be sad tomorrow. They are not getting anything for Christmas. They are spoiled and already have everything.
    Dont make me go all Jonathan Winters on this gas station.

    Spotted in Liverpool today, and such a special paint job as well, I guess the saddle was a late upgrade.

    Pardon my thread derailment...funny, but your saddle upgrade made me remember seeing this saddle security method a few years ago in Amsterdam. Perhaps saddle appropriation a problem in Europe?



    Looking this bike over (I wish that I had a photo), I noted this was a well maintained high mileage commuter, but I think the frame was recovered from a river (perhaps near that scooter). An old, steel frame that had obviously seen better days, but had served well.

    sad that it is pollution, not sad that it is one less scooter.

    as far as that saddle security, I like that. I have a quick release on mine. never thought about saddle theft.

    Saddle security, it looks like a high dollar Brooks leather saddle. Security, plus it adds to the cool factor of that bike. ✔️Like.

    Sent away for business to a resort in California, looks great, lots of cool stuff, I'm taking pictures, checking out all the resort, then wait, look close, someone left a bike all alone!
    Don't know which is sadder, abandoned bike, or that all I can see is bikes!

    Someone was kind enough to straighten up this sad bike (after 2 months on it's side). The cheesy looking saddle could use some love though

    Sad Bikes-tr_img_0057.jpg

    My friend passed me on this steed and about two miles later he was hit head on by a car that turned left right in front of him as he was doing over 30mph. I rode up a few minutes after it happened. The BB shell completely separated from both chainstays, the seattube and downtube, and you could still spin the crank in the shell. My friend was banged up pretty bad, but he didn't even spend the night in the hospital.

    dang .... your friend should buy a lottery ticket he is one lucky guy to be alive after that.. let alone out of the hospital that quick..

    this is why I prefer mountain biking.. rocks / trees don't tend to run into you... you may run into them certainly but they probably won't run into you.

    Exactly, with mtb you only have to be concerned with how you operate.

    ^ I agree that mtb is "safer". I cringe sometimes when I watch Friday Fails on PB. And I've had my share of crashes (with serious consequences) while mtb.

    But nothing compares one crash I witnessed when I used to road cycle. I was lagging behind the faster group, and trying to catch up to the front riders. I was only 50 metres behind when a car driver, underestimated the speed of the cyclists, turned into the intersection and smashed into the group. If I was riding with the front 4 guys, I would have been part of the carnage. I had to call 911 and EMS were there within minutes. No one died nor seriously injured but bikes were shattered, lycra ripped and knees and elbows were skinned. One guy had a concussion and needed EMS. The car driver was in shock and he went with EMS. The remaining cyclists picked up their bike pieces and the police took them to where they needed.

    Soon after that I met and started dating my "future husband" who introduced me to mtb

    we had many crashed like these riding BMX back in the day...and often it was our fault for doing stupid things, but in hind sight, I don't know how any of us survived. The worst was when riding along a line of parked cars, and someone opens the door right in front of you, which also happened a lot during bike messenger work too. I probably saw the worst wrecks doing that...
