King Sized Bike Shop Advertising


This bike shop in Altlandsberg, Germany decided to go all out to advertise their place. Co-owner Christian Petersen [Danish name, surprise, surprise] is visible in the window, surrounded by 120 bicycles hung on the facade.


Thanks to Frits for the link!

And there was me thinking it was a response to the problem of find a safe place to park your bicycle... ;-)

I love it! It reminds me of all the old (pre-literate) European shop signs, from beer halls to smiths.

During WW-II the German government in Holland requisitioned all bicycles, in 1944 I think (I was too young then to remember exactly!). Ever since a standard Dutch reaction to a German claim is "and I want my bike back" - it's "my grandfather's bike" nowadays. A lot of Dutch will have grinned when seeing these pics.
