I like to quickly sketch bikes I see locked up outside of the surrounding office buildings during my lunchtime strolls. One bike I see often is this black Bottecchia, which has been retrofitted into a rather ungainly urban fixie commuter. Whomever rides it is either very ungainly themselves, or just content with riding a too-tall frame with a too-long stem (a nice mid-90s Cinelli) and very low seat (Brooks). This once classic Italian race bike is also defiled with white Velocity Deep-V rims and blue tires. This is a rather sloppy sketch, but then again, it’s a sketch of a rather sloppy bike.
