    1. Ich frage mich immer, wo die alle herkommen… AuรŸerdem brauche ich echt ein neues Fahrrad. Lustig, wie sich der Blog manchmal unterbewusst fรผllt ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. No, it’s a bit stragic. Most people I know had at least one bike stolen … With my better half, someone stole his seat, then waited to get a new one and next morning the whole bike was gone. Another friend had a van following him, went to the bank quickly and his (super expensive) bike was gone. Berlin is a place for tough cookies ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. Looks like it is. Isn’t that a shame though? I remember living in Holland as a child, and discovering the freedom or riding my bike everywhere. Of course we had locks but never had any problem then.

  1. Cool post. Funny to see these bikes chained to posts and left like monuments. I cycle everywhere and always worry about parts going missing when I chain it up. On my way to work a couple of weeks back I saw an old bike that had been dug out of a pit by construction workers – rusted to hell and back. Wished I’d snapped a pic now after seeing this post.

    1. Thank you! If I had a few months, I could probably fill a whole coffee table book with them. You are right, there seems to be something monumental to them. Did you see the vintage toy post? It was dedicated to you ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. Please… more photos of old bikes ๐Ÿ™‚
        I’m just catching up on all my stuff in my reader so will look forward to your vintage toy post v much! Dedicated to me? Wow thank you. Exciting! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Ž BRB!
