Robert Pattinson poses with a bike

I thought actor Robert Pattinson was riding around on a brakeless fixie during filming in New York City. But is that a coaster brake reaction arm I see down there on the left chain stay?

I think the black tape around the frame and duct tape on the saddle are marvelous touches by the prop master. A totally unpretentious bike, the complete opposite of shiny tarck bikes with deep V rims.

    You could cut through that chain with a good pair of yard garden shears.

    I certainly hope that this was for the movie and he's not riding around nyc on that thing! Quite bizarre.
