So many questions about this one...

1) How does one jump onto it? I mean, where does your leg go, really?
2) What is the front lever for? I can't find the FD.
3) There's obviously a light on the seatpost. The kid is certainly going to enjoy it. Or not?
4) What is that double stand attached to?
5) Oh, and finally, why aerowheels? Is it in a hope to compensate for the drag induced by the plastic sail behind?

hahaha all fair points, esp No 1. guess you need a ballet dancer flexibility to get your leg over the handlebars, or at least over the top tube. but anyway, I'm just a (bike) messenger, so don't ask me. right hand lever is for front brake only, there's only 3 cables. so it's not a brifter, just simple brake lever. don't forget it's Di2 eh!

Possibly the saddest bike chain I've seen this week :-(

Not as charming as two sumo wrestlers on a handlebar, but some interesting DIY job in fixing a broken aluminum frame. I mean three bolts and a steel clamp is all you need to fix a full suspension bike, I guess.
Scary!
The only thing that relieves me in this case, is that this bike will most likely never see any single trail nor go down fast descents.

Another finding in front of a grocery store.
I'm actually not intentionally looking for bike crimes. But what can I do, if I park my bike, do my shopping and when I get back to my bike this one is standing right next to mine?!?

I'm just gonna leave these here for your entrainment. Passed it on the street close to Tokyo tower the other day. Pretty sure it's still being used

The chain in the second picture might tie Mike's shot, above.
