As a friend of mine was unlocking this bike, I asked if I could take a few quick photos of it for the Locked Up series. Alex’s Panasonic is one of the few properly-built and flashy track bikes you’ll see in the neighborhood. Most have sad saddles, rediculous saddle-to bar drop and various other faux pas. I first met Alex in Baltimore, way back when and recently he’s been kicking around NYC for about a year now. Today was the first time I saw him not actually riding his bike, so I took the opportunity to shoot a few quick photos. Note the sign and remember, people don’t mess around in this neighborhood when it comes to locking bikes to fences.
Check out a few more photos of Alex’s Panasonic on my Flickr. Thanks Alex!
