I go for a walk before lunch, and I see a bike with its front wheel missing. I have seen others here in a similar condition on more than one occasion this year.
I remember once seeing a group of seven or eight year old boys gathered around a similarly dismantled bike. They had their phones out and they stood around the scene of the crime photographing the evidence.
A woman walking towards me looking at them, and then at me, and burst into a big grin. I did the same. I feel sure we both had memories of our own of standing around like this, looking at something that amazed us and almost nobody else.
On the other hand: where do all the missing wheels go? Has someone started a collection?
