This is a former rental bike that I bought a couple of years ago from some sort of surf-shop ('Aloha-Berlin'). The frame looks almost like vintage steel, but is in fact aluminium. Unfortunately, I got distracted by a lorry and crashed early this week. I managed to wedge my front wheel in these tram rails, which I thought would never happen to me.

Luckily I got away with a few scratches, but the impact compressed the left side of my steel-made(!) handlebar: To my benefit that apparently took a lot of the energy. There was a slight damage on the front wheel, I had to readjust the stem, and of course replaced the handlebar. Folks, wear your hand protection gloves... D:

Edit: The first pic is the latest state, i.e. WITH the new handlebar.
