The Bike Man

The squealing sound of a fan belt that needs tightening is a frequent player in the symphony of street noise here.  It seemed odd to me that it was such a common problem until one day I watched a taxi with bald tires trying to get some traction on bald stones...duh...  That is the source of the squealing noise.

The street surface is equally hard on bicycles and the bike stall in the market is a busy place.
