I spied this cozy crocheted cruiser on Balboa Street just outside Shanghai Dumpling King in San Francisco. Bundle up, winter's coming!

    And the wheels have a thick coat of playa dust.

    We got ours washed off by a tribal school fundraiser group in Nixon NV. The leopard fur looked like the cat forgot to lick it dry – it was all matted up.

    Cool bike. I’m glad I live in the Southern Hemisphere and can look forward to Summer, not Winter!

    i love that burners can spot a burner bike. It does look like one. before i read i thought the bike was in LA.

    The only thing that could improve the awesomeness would be if the crochet continued off of the bottom tube and onto the meter post. Not a lot, just enough to suggest that is was spreading.

    This is actually part of  a wider practice known as ‘Yarn Bombing’… There’s a number of people starting to realise about this now, especially since several of Antony Gormley’s Another Place statues were bedecked in the same fashion.

    It’s always winter here in San Francisco.  Unless it’s fall.  Then, it’s summer for a few days before it’s winter again.

    definitely a burner bike

    Bikes don’t suffer in the cold as people do. In fact, bikes do as well in cold weather as in warm weather. What bikes don’t like is to be mishandled and crashed by less careful riders.
