Things you see on the street

There is a cottage industry of tool sharpeners who hone metal with modified bicycles. The guys attach a circular whetstone to the bicycle gears and spin. There will often be several of these machines in a row; and with the cyclers manically peddling without movement, bent backs with sweaty brows, and hot orange sparks flying into the street, the scene is reminiscent of Dante's Inferno.

Or at least a really bad spin class.
