bike art


jane calls it my 'installation'. she's titled it 'hot aches and near misses'. it's a traveling exhibition and can be installed in any home for the small fee of a slice of cake and a cup of tea.

trio said...

No mudguards?

swiss said...

what's that sticky outy thing at the rear hub?

Dorian Grey said...

Haha, my brother runs an alternative art gallery in Stoke-on-Trent called "Airspace".

Upside: They always have tea and cake in stock. So if you ever go that way and need to park your bike up.......:P

Downside: you may have to leave it there for a few weeks though as the critics ponder on its merits....:)

Groover said...

Love how the mud skids on the jacket match the tyre profile of the rear wheel. Very well arranged, Kate! But don't give up your day job (just yet!). :-)

*strokes chin and peers over rims of glasses*

Powerful. Very powerful.

sbrt said...

Priceless.

It would look good in a tank full of formaldehyde.

kate said...

uc- he's probably add and attractive, semi naked man.... hopefully not in the seated position ;)

trio- now fitted and with added pannier

swiss- something which allegedly should help me up hills-not working!

dorian- hmmm, i could make a 'short' detour! sounds v.interesting btw

groover- approximately 200m of grime carefully placed ;)

simon- *drunkenly flounces off in the style of tracey emin* 'you just don't get it do you ;)

sbrt- hmmm, wonder if that would help keep the chain clean?!

trio said...

Never actually rode with panniers, found it easier not to. But pic of the workhorse.

Hayfella said...

The Turner beckons...
What'll you spend your winnings on?

The German said...

Gears are over rated ...you soon get used to the lack of choice ;-)

kate said...

trio- about to transfer everything onto blackie, photos to follow

hayfella- another bike of course!

the german- ha, my left knee would agree

trio said...

For that distance I would be sticking to a road bike...still it'll be good training on blackie.

kate said...

thought you mainly fixie'd, and much further. i want to be as strong as you...but without the trotters ;) plus, blackie just isn't getting used at the moment and it's wrecking my road bike

trio said...

Yes fixie here, sometimes further sometimes less depends where I am working. Probably on average about the same as centre of wigan is 12miles away. But my fixie is a road bike with nice skinny road tyres. I got kiwi specifically because I was wreaking my roadbike!

kate said...

i see. so the conclusion is i NEED a new bike :)

trio said...

Yes that was a silly question! Kiwi has more than paid for herself...although I had to get a new set of wheels recently so its still not free miles.
