Pursuit / TT / Low Pro / Funny Bike Day Pt. 3

Real nice fluoro-pink 3Rensho Pursuit track bike I saw in Shibuya during my Tokyo trip in December. That was actually probably the nicest bike I saw while over there, and I did see plenty of nice bikes.

and the funny part is, how it's just locked to itself, instead of the railing? :)

that just the Japanese way, I guess.

there's apparently very little bike theft. or any other kind of criminality, due to super-harsh punishments you get for the smallest misdemeanors.

most of the locks, and the way they are used, you see in Japan are jokes by western standards.

From what I've seen online that's a pretty beefy chain for Japan...

why they don't just loop it over the railing I don't know... you wouldn't think it would take much effort?

I realize it's the law of diminishing returns... there's a lock on it and very little crime, why bother locking it to something?
