The Saddle-Socks Matcher
It's not uncommon to encounter cyclists who cover their saddle with a plastic bag, either to protect it from a potential damage from the Irish harsh weather or to cover a mutilated seat that has been destroyed already.
I haven't checked, but I presume that in some cases replacing the saddle can be disproportionately expensive, so it makes no sense to change it, especially whence the damage can happen again.
Usually, however, the cyclists who ride on plastic bag don't try to match their socks to the improvised saddle cover, as this gentleman did.
I took this photo on 20 July 2012 at the Junction of Wexford/Aungier Street and Kevin Street.
