Lots of bikes, not many gears!

This is where all the old steel road bikes have gone to relive their youth, being ridden by people with jeans so tight I wonder how they actually pedal or sit down...

I live in Shoreditch, The reason I have so many bikes is to try and up the ratio of gears to people here.

Did a bit of a recce today and found the rather good London Bike Kitchen - a workshop open to the public to fix their own bikes or be taught how to, good idea!
