One of my favorite things to do is wander down side alleys in Shanghai. It’s like walking through someone’s living room – private and public spaces are interchangeable. On one such journey I stumbled across this battered bike that had been taped up, over and over again. The seat was taped, the fender was taped… But miraculously the part that says “Forever” painted on the side, was untouched. No matter the case, you know the owner is going the distance with this bike.
