So first off, let me just say that I don't know much about bicycles. I did buy a new one over the summer since I wanted to be more mobile around the neighbourhood. A couple of weeks ago, I accidentally stumbled upon The Wrench on instagram. They had an upcoming Bike Art Opening and I decided to check it out. I wasn't expecting anything but when I got there, I was in awe of the art pieces that a local artist, Dimitry Melman, made out of reclaimed bicycle parts. Aside from the art exhibit, they also had bicycles for sale and for bidding. It was so cool to see their entire space for the first time. They had all sorts of bike parts, tools and even workspaces. If you're a bicycle owner, you can drop by and fix your ride in the shop or you can even volunteer to fix other people's bikes. It's quite awesome to know that there's this kind of community here in the city.

  16. Aaw I love your pants, such a cute print! And the bag is really cool too!
    Wow bike art, that's a great idea! I also support the idea that more people should learn how to fix their bikes - including myself! That would've saved me so much money over the past years.

  26. I love your printed pants! :)

    That bike place is such a great idea! I'm sure it will make more people happy to bike around - knowing they can go somewhere and learn to fix their bike if something goes wrong, or to get someone to fix it for them. Glad you found the place! :)

  56. The lighting in your photos is so beautiful!

    I've never seen a store do that kind of fusion between bikes and artwork--then again I haven't been to many bike stores. It seems very cool. I love how art can take so many shapes, especially when it's functional art that you can take to get you somewhere!

    Have a great weekend!
