I really wonder sometimes why some people just don't buy a bigger frame.... either that or it was a hand me down from a much shorter biker or the current owner is borderline sadomasochistic.
Frame sizing rant over. Love the improvised handlebar tape I gather as a ode to the Melbourne University Cycling Club [link], not so much the gold headset spacers. Also what is with the $5 plastic pedals? Component rant over.

Sam Polcer's portrait series of people with their preferred mode of transport [link] can now be found in all it's glossy photobook glory entitled New York Bike Style [link] which documents pretty much verbatim the title of said glossy photobook. The Book has been published by Prestal [link]
Looking at his blog Preferred Mode [link] it's clear with the shear frequency of uploads on almost a daily basis is pretty impressive to say the least. Hell, I know how hard it is to post on a semi weekly basisl let alone a daily basis!
Anyway if you are at all into Humans of New York [link] then press the subscribe button on Sam Polcer's RSS feed as well.
Also other photographic bike portrait series to checkout while you are at it.

Best not to make snide remarks on a bike with a ninja decal on it best they find out where I live. I have to say I do love frames with the rear dropouts that are hollowed out.
