Porta Biciclette (Window Bike)

The image was found here, but the little icon says SuperEdo.it

What the...?

I'll be the first to admit that it's difficult to find places to store bikes (I have six...three are parked in my living room; one hangs from the ceiling on a bicycle pulley system). But I have to admit I've never seen anyone hang a bike out a window...pretty ingenious.

Great until it slips from your fingers one day! Ooops sorry... or there is a really windy day. Fun picture.

6 bicycles? Urban Complexity! :-)

Yup Jeff, 6 bikes...but I should qualify that statement: only 3 (the three in my living room) are really in use. The Yuba, which I use to haul stuff, the "Mule" (an old Trek I picked up at a flea market for 40 bucks), which is mainly my winter bike, and the Dahon folder (the one hanging from the ceiling), which I use to zip around town on or take on the bus or subway. These 3 bikes all serve different purposes and enable me to leave my vehicle parked for sometime weeks without starting it. The other 3 are in the basement: my son's bike which he has out grown, and an old Raleigh sprite. These two are going to be donated to Buffalo Blue bike. The last is a tandem that I'm not sure what I'm going to do with. Of the 6 only the Yuba and Dahon were purchased new...I can't help myself when I see a good bike for cheap at a yard sale or flea market...they seem to cycle (pun intended) in and out of my life.

Thanks for reading and posting.

Hey, Joe...you know I was just joking. :-)

I myself maintain 10 bicycles....but I have 5 children and so there are always a few that they have not yet grown into.

Take care and stay warm!
