With a tip of the cycling cap to Bill Cunningham's long-running "On the Street" feature in the New York Times, or the sidewalk snaps of the Sartorialist blog, peloton offers up a new installment in the Shutter photo gallery: Locked Up.
The format is simple. Some bikes catch our eye, some don't. Those that do tend to have character. Whether the workaday beater bike, the modern city bike, or the fashion-conscious fixie, these bikes lie in wait on the street, locked to fences, sign posts, and racks, biding their time before the next run around town.
This sturdy machine kicks off the series, spotted in New York's Greenwich Village, the I [heart] New York sticker gives it the right amount of local flavor while the solid-looking frame, dual fenders, and sturdy stub-nosed saddle complete the package. A retrofitted single speed setup underscores the desire for simplicity and dependability on the mean streets of NYC.
