He cheered me on at the marathon this morning! In Bloomfield around mile 22!

He was in Shadyside on Saturday morning, first cruising down Walnut and then stopping in to get his bike detailed at Shadyside Detail.

Saw him this morning, walking a bike I’ve not seen before along Penn Circle N. I’d like to call it the “white knight” bicycle: pretty much completely white with a white car bumper and a Harley-Davidson style banana seat: black leather with silver studs.

We asked him how many bikes he had. I’m pretty sure he said “eleven thousand”.

Aaron came in to the shop the other day, told us that he loved our business and that he wanted to help us out, and gave us a paper bag filled with 3/4 sized photocopied money.

It was amazing. I will post pics of the money bag when I can take a photo.

Reading this made my day.

I am sooooo looking forward to this.

After work tonight he was rolling up Liberty right before Bloomfield bridge on the sidewalk…

If BB is on the sidewalk, you know there are problems at that juncture.

The leering shadow at the bottom of this photo looks like a haunting foreshadowing of sorts.

Hopefully nothing ominous… the sun was just at my back when I took the pic. I did tell him that his rear tire looked a little soft tho.

He was riding the chopper when we rode with him at the last critical mass.

It looked really flippin heavy, especially with those massive tires. He pulled up on the sidewalk like that every other block, probably to take a breather from pedaling that beast.

Now that you mention it, I think I found a picture of Arnold on one of the bumper bikes. Perhaps this was taken before he was Governor?Bumper bike & Arnold.

BTW, if anyone is looking to follow in Bumper Bike’s footsteps, there are four(!) bumpers sitting in the weeds next to the old mechanic’s garage at the corner of Rural and North Negley in ‘Sliberty.

I wonder what he would do if he saw a crew of 10 bumper bikes rolling up the street.

I did google it before I posted, but I figured a German show didn’t count, plus, bumper bike dude isn’t hosting.

There’s an abandoned yellow BB on Gold Way in North Oakland (alley between Craig and Melwood / Center and Baum). It’s been sitting there for at least a day, was there at 6:30pm tonight.

Oh sad! That’s the one I saw him on a few weeks back during morning rush hour. Maybe he doesn’t like yellow anymore…

If he doesn’t have one already, I think this should serve as some inspiration for a Batman Bumper Bike: Batmobile Golf Cart

Maybe he’s parked the yellow BB till July’s Tour de France.

My bf is trying to find him to interview him for a Pittsburgh based blog he has… anyone have any suggestions on finding him other than the ones that aren’t posted already in this thread? I know he’s often seen around east lib/bloomfield/garfield.

you don’t find Aaron, he finds you it seems.

Also, the yellow bumper bike (sans bumper) has been leaning against a pole by the bmw dealer on center, UNLOCKED, for well over a week now. amazing

i’ve ridden past the abandoned bike and have been sad to see that the bumper is gone. maybe he took the bumper and put it on another bike…
