Watch a Timelapse Video of a Decomposing Bike


For those of us who live in really cramped apartments, but prefer to pedal our way about town, finding a safe place to keep our bikes can be stressful — if not borderline impossible in certain cases. Perhaps that’s why we find this timelapse video by Red Peak Branding so fascinating; they chained a “fully-loaded” bike to a post on a busy sidewalk in Soho, and proceeded to snap a daily photo as it was slowly stripped down, and eventually disappeared altogether. Click through to check out the results of their experiment; you’ll never believe how long it takes for someone to finally swipe that pretty basket!
