Apples

My Apples
So. I bought some groceries and didn't have room for the apples on the front rack. That's what the hook on my back rack is for.

Take a turn to quick, the bag will swing into the spokes, and you'll have german apples all over the ground.

I am afraid that the apples would clatter. But I believe you had eaten them well.^^

Bespoke apples?

Anonymous, there's one more support-rod for the rack underneath the bag of apples.

Be careful. I've had horrible horrible results when doing the same thing with bananas.

A) Why is the writing on the bag in German?

B) And people say bicycles are the problem: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/02/28/car-runs-down-bicyclists-brazil_n_829425.html

Is this the new Apple iRack?

It didn't tear off?

Drew:

A)Applying Occam's razor I deduce that the bag was printed by a German. Sometimes the simple answers are the correct ones.

B)People do not say that bicycles are the problem, people invested in automobiles say that bicycles are the problem.

The problem for the student is to determine who is most invested in automobiles.

Hint: The Netherlands have a high rate of cycling, France a low rate.

If you've seen a fraction of the things people transport by bicycle here, you would realise that they apples wouldn't swing into the spokes.

There looks like there's a fair bit of rust on your seat stays of the Velorbis Mikael?

A sign of bicycle culture: Them common everyday dutnish peoples just knows. Without thinking. Sometimes without even knowing that there is something they know.
They've experienced both the 'tear off' and the horror the horror of the bananas-squashed-in-plasticbag-squashed-in-spokes-kind of encounter. So now they simply don't do THAT.
But they also know from experience, just holding it in the hand, that with this bag, no problems. Big strong and flat enuff. Apple iBag. Build in Germany for export. Apples not too soft.

The apples are impressive. Not quite as impressive as live chickens dangling beside the wheel like that, but still impressive.
