Spotted this afternoon right outside the entrance to Zlote Tarasy on ul. Złota, just before the snow came down. You can’t see in the photo but the frame is secured to the post by one of those chain-padlock things.
I only have four possible explanations, none of which make much sense to me so perhaps a reader will advise on what is really going on:
- This is a brazen and broad daylight variant on bicycle theft, turn it upside down and steal the wheels.
- It is an extreme measure of security by the owner who has gone shopping carrying two bicycle wheels.
- The owner has removed the wheels to take to the Intersport shop in the shopping centre. (surely easier to just wheel the bike there?!)
- Some kind of practical joke.
UPDATE: The following day it is still in exactly the same place. I guess that rules out 2 and 3.
