Just thought i'd put this photo up here - not my bike, someone else's that i spotted at the supermarket.

First one to spot what's wrong with this picture wins something. The helmet debate, maybe. Yes - if you win this you get to decide about helmets - can't say fairer than that.

D lock only on stem.. fairly simple to ride bike away, should you wish to enjoy such a beast.

Straight handlebars, mudguards, disc brakes, seat tilted back, pannier thing; no end of issues there.

Although the rest of you are very inventive / saw things in the picture I didn't realize were there. Everyone's a winner.

I was very tempted to "steal" this bike with my multitool, just to see how quickly i could do it.

(Though I'd probably be slowed up by resetting the headset bearings to my satisfaction, and making sure the stem was midline. In other words I'd make a terrible bike thief!).

Oh, just realized I could probably have popped the faceplate, no need to undo the top cap - that would make for a much quicker getaway.

Anyway, the real question is - Ronstermonster - do we have to wear helmets now, or not?  3

No, but if you're planning on riding a bike without a stem faceplate, I'd recommend it.  3

I always wear a helmet.... but tbh I haven't got any hair so I do that more for the camo effect tan I sport on my bonce through the summer.
But yes children you should wear a helmet at all times.

Too late, some woman called Trott has an opinion on it...

Proof that Dutch style cycling will never catch on in Britain.

Am I the only one to focus on the second lock that is "holding" the seatpost to the frame?
