Cycle Parking Farcility of the Month permalink
Is it a sheep?

Is it a bird?

It's shiny, and useless - it must either be a work of art or a cycle parking farcility.

It "supports" this bike on the brake fixing on one side, and the spokes on the other.

In a bike with narrower tyres, and standard brakes, the wheel would just flop around.

There is no way to lock the frame of the cycle to the structure.

This is what happens when artists choose things on their "shinyness" factor, rather than asking the local cyclists what they want (good old Sheffield stands). It's been imported all the way from Italy, BTW.
