  1. I am a total sucker for that “I’m genetically engineered to love you in my fuzzy way” look puppies have.

  2. nice cultural insight, cool moment, and this is so different than typical West(micro repair shop mobile maker handyman) but then same(human loving animal, human making existence).

  3. Oh look, is it a Stockbroker?
    Is it a Quantity Surveyor?
    Is it a Church Warden?
    No! It’s BICYCLE REPAIR MAN!

  4. I’ll bet he can fix just about anything. My local bike shop can too – once they order in the part – and wait two weeks for it to arrive. There was a guy who would set up repair services along the Bristol-Bath cycle path in the UK when I lived there a few years back. Can’t recall if he had dogs. Cool photo.

  5. I see the text in my RSS reader “A bicycle repairer strokes his dog inside a storage box on his tricycle as he waits for his customer in Beijing”. I think of a man on a something like a bicycle, with a small dog in a box on his bike. He’s reaching in to pet the dog.

    I click the link. Instead of what I imagine, I see a an enormous box. The man is actually sitting in the box. Along with his two dogs.
