25 Mar bicycles
La Pierre bicycles look nice. Sometimes looking up at a product or thing can make it more dramatic or important. You respect a massive building (as long as it looks structually sound) as you might have respected your father towering over you as a child. In this picture you have all the essential items that make it a bike; handlebars, frame, forks and spoked wheel. Its a landscape rectagular object that is now in a rectagular portrait shape and cropped, but it is recognisable as a bicycle.
Bicycles nowadays are often carbon framed. The frame and front forks are made from carbon fibre which is both strong and light in weight. Yay! People want lighter bikes as you use less energy to propell a lighter bike therefore…….Therefore you can ride for longer before you are spent! I prefer to ride mountain bikes as you dont go quite as fast!
At a speed of 35 miles per hour on a lightweight carbon bike going downhill and a car pulls out in front of you, ouch! Have you seen those little rubber blocks they call brakes. What if the wheel is wet and oily from a mucky road? Tarmac is rough against the skin at 35 miles per hour. The lycra leggings just get ripped instantly, exposing bare flesh to be violently dragged along the road, ugh!
