The legendary Fietsfabriek comes to Walthamstow!

And receives a traditional London welcome…

I guess that was somebody’s pride and joy. A gorgeous, sturdy bike, not like the £75 crap mountain bikes you can buy in Halfords. And now the owner has quite possibly given up cycling, because it’s just not worth the hassle.

Locally, I see more and more bikes with their back wheels missing. Is this theft or is someone going round deliberately vandalising bikes?

This wreck can be found outside the public library on Coppermill Lane E17. You know, the one which never had any cycle parking and which is now derelict after the council closed it down against the wishes of local residents.

And in case you didn’t know, The Fietsfabriek is a family business in the centre of Amsterdam.
