I wish I could see this, TFAM Exhibition



















This piece in a current exhibition by Chinese artist Ai Weiwei at the Taipei Fine Arts Museum looks amazing. Created specifically for TFAM, “Forever Bicycles” is an installation piece made up of more than 1,000 bicycles and will be shown in a display area that is 10m high. Its the most bicycles Ai Weiwei has ever used in a single work and is certain to be popular exhibit in bike loving Taiwan.



Below is an older piece - 2006 - also named "Forever Bicycles"

New Wood Rack


Have been testing out a new wood rack idea today. It lets you carry a wider load than our cargo basket. Works great with an old inner tube as a strap.
