pic from stockholm

Last weekend I visited Stockholm, capital of Sweden. There is lot of bicycles, we noticed lot of old Swedish company Crescent bikes there, it's still popular. Unfortunately I haven't seen Crescent bikes in Estonia, but I'm sure that we have Crescen bikes here, because some weeks ago Ilmar sent us old Estonian ad for this company.



I just love this bicycle chain cover! So beautiful!

  1. Very cool chain cover. Haven't seen that before.

    When I was in Sweden, I didn't see very many cyclists. It was very bike-friendly though. Old town (Gamla Stan) seemed more walkable.

  3. Month ago in Kärdla, Hiiumaa - in small and cute, just like in tiny model of Estonia amidst blue waters - I spotted young estonian 5-7 y. old boy riding in one super decent old Crescent. But I have spotted more and more.

    These are essentially retired, however and the one you photographed is still
    working, and that's better.
