Over the years, Matt posted lots of pics of NYC bikes in various states of disrepair/disrespect. Including his own bike which, though it looked like a hobo bike, was actually in good shape.
Anywho, I thought this short clip of the life cycle of a bike in NYC was pretty cool. Some folks locked up a bike in January 2011, then watched what happened. The end result is not too surprising I guess, but the clip is still fun to watch.
