This conch cruiser roadie was caught locked up in front of Louie’s Backyard. Ohhh what a beauty!  I really dig the isle style on this bicycle. The frame almost looks too nice with that awesome tropical blue paint. Flipped handlebars and a basket too. Dang. Hotness….

Ape hanger handlebars…. with bar ends!…. and a towing ball ready for business on the rear end. Only in Key West.

Pollard and I locked up our bicycles at the racks on Front Street next to the boardwalk and docks and gangplanks and whatnot. There were A LOT of bikes locked up whilst their riders were happyhouring or maybe out on sunset cruises: a beautiful sight. This shot presented itself and caught my fancy. A few weeks later I realized the bicycle with the sticker is owned by Chris at Melo Velo.

First, thank you to Pollard for taking this photo and sending it to me. Just another day in Key Wierd. I sometimes tow my kayak with my bicycle, and this dude sometimes tows his jet ski with his bicycle. I’ve seen an assortment of trailers on the island towing Mallory Square retail space, street vending set-ups and of course trailers with dogs, kids or kids and dogs. Lots of dogs in baskets too; I’ll have to start collecting shots for a dog post.

I wish I could see this beauty in action and see what’s getting towed by such a swanky set-up. This photo was snapped while riding by the Waterfront Market one night.
