177348Photo #177348My guess is that a vehicle has reversed crushing the bike against the rack and bending the rack completely over. The back wheel in particular looks like it has been pressed over the rack. The pedal crank is bent too, so quite a substantial force.

This happens when street cycle parking is not protected by bollards.
