I am a Monty Python fan, and I always remember the sketch Bicycle Repair Man because it made my Dad laugh so much. With a Clink! Screw! Alter saddle! he came to save the day. The humour of Monty Python, taking an everyday situation and stretching it to comedic end, is well illustrated by this example.
I was walking through Amsterdam when I saw the shop pictured, and I had to snap it. I practically laughed out loud remembering Bicycle Repair Man, and what a fitting place – the capital of bikes – to find a reference to that silly sketch amongst the many bike hire and repair shops.
