    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.

    ^^ That's a real shame as there are other parts of the world where those bicycles could make a real difference in people's lives.

    One Thousand Sad Bikes!

    Authorities recently discovered this underground bunker filled with 1000 bikes stolen by hobos.

    That is really sad they are just being destroyed.... Seems like they could easily be donated to communities around China that are poor and in need of some basic transportation.


    Here is a Sad bike I saw in Boston a few years ago when they had that super snowy winter.

    I found this sad specimen while out blackberry picking a while back:

    Sad Bikes-20170903_164612.jpg

    The poor thing has been strangled by its own innards tube, and to add insult to injury the wheels and derailleur have been stomped on.

    In the same area (and probably related) I found a kid's helmet stuffed in a hedge, and an empty wallet lying in the grass. They looked in decent condition so I put them on a gatepost for someone to scavenge, and indeed a couple of days later they were gone:

    Haha. I would never ignore you two.

    I was just in Chicago. So yeah ó late winter/early spring. I thought it was beautiful. Vibrant. No signs of economic despair that I saw (except for the sad bike I posted). Litter free. Exquisite architecture. EXQUISITE. Great restaurants. Best pizza ever. Friendly people. The only downside was our hotel, which was only ok, at best. Hyatt Regency on East Whacker. Meh. We will return, but will be much more discriminating in terms of hotel choice. While an eye sore, the Trump, which was 2 minutes away, was MUCH more upscale.

    DJ - I thought you loved, or at least liked, Chicago too.

    As a bonus, I really got a much better appreciation for good craft beer south of the border.

    All in all, Chicago in March exceeded all my expectations (which were very low, which probably helped in this regard).

    Great place, the US of A.

    DJ - I thought you loved, or at least liked, Chicago too.
    I do like it. Itís everything you said it is. I havenít been there for many years so sure itís even better now. My comment was about you calling it the nicest place on earth. Nice yeah, but the nicest place on earth?

    Not to split hairs, but I said that Chicago is the nicest place I have been to. Iím off to Paris and elsewhere in the fall so maybe that will raise the bar for me.

    Also, I was being a little enthusiastic in that response.

    I have been to most destinations in the Carribean, the Hawaiian islands, California, Florida, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, interior BC, Vancouver Island and numerous other places as well. But yeah - very impressed with Chicago. Again, maybe because I wasnít expecting much.

    Perhaps I should revise my comment to ďChicago was very impressive and a pleasant surprise indeed given the mid-March coldness...Ē

    I'm not sure what is sadder. A sad bike in the rain or a pink rusty bike with a pink balloon?

    Along my commuter trail there's been a homeless dude setting up his camp here every night. His regular ride is an old Kona. Not sure what he's doing with this thing.
