And it seems he’s been doing this for a while now. And people are loving it.

According to a post on TikTok, the bike fairy estimates he’s left his mark on hundreds of bikes in several different countries.

He’s posted that if someone doesn’t like them, they are easily removable.

So, how is it decided which bikes to tag?

A comment on one of the videos states, “Usually ticks one of these: is the bike vintage? is the bike customized/cool colors? does it look like the owner cares for it? is the coast clear?”
