 Reminder not to lock your bike across just the cross bar. Hopefully the guy who owns it will get a new one for Christmas.

        But don’t those bike rail things only really give you the option to lock it across the crossbar?

        So you should lock against the bar that goes from the seat to the pedals (whatever it’s called )?

            If they have any sense they won’t try because they’ll know there is no way they will end up with a bike that isn’t wrecked.

      Because would be thieves will try bend/break/cut the lock to rob the bike. The result is a very nasty and useless frame (like above)

      The advice was “not to lock your bike across just the cross bar” – Meaning lock another part of the bike as well.
      2 good locks is a bare minimum for Dublin

        1. Yeah, Ok

          Typical blueshirt comment Harry, calling other people blueshirts. Ya blueshirt.

          Dav will have the thought police on you. Have I called you a blueshirt yet?

          Also something something give it to the homeless.

            trying to offer advice and an attempted slice by blushirt thugs, with a “joke” made at the homeless crisis, how thatcherite of ye..

        Have been using one good lock for 3 and a half years and it is fine. Lost a saddle once and a quick release front wheel when I forgot the cable to loop through it in a rougher part of town.

    Outside Hueston station is just a hole. Every type of crap is hanging around outside. Pickpockets, drug dealing, drinking. All the culchies and tourists have to look at that lot when passing through. Embarrassing.

      I’m convinced that’s why most people who think Dublin is a hole think the way they do. They come into to either one of the train stations and are greeted by that, then they go to Croke park and O’Connell street and see more of it.

      it was only when I started to live up here I could see you weren’t all coddle addled swine who only used your bath tubs for storing coal and stolen merchandise.

      1. Brother Barnabas

        But as for those of us who are coddle adled swine and do use out bathtubs to store stolen merchandise, you don’t think any less of us, do you?

            the problem with communicating with text is it can be difficult to convey tone, this is exasperated by the fact that I am such a poor writer, so how could you know that what I said I said with great affection and a hint of irony

          2. Harry Molloy

            it doesn’t make me any less sorry. I’m fupping stupid sometimes, always rubbing people up the wrong way

          3. Brother Barnabas

            rest assured, Harry – you couldn’t rub me up the wrong way. I know you’re a man with a gentle, pure heart, with a sharp wit. I’m very fond of you – online persona albeit.

        Same up at Talbot St, Busaras, Connolly – the locals put on real show for any tourists in the area, its embarrassing, one day it might be full blown conversation between two skangers at 150 meters apart, other days they will actually be having physical fights on the street.

        1. Yeah, Ok

          I’ve seen people going both number one AND number two more times than one might expect in a lifetime on Talbot St. and its surrounding streets.

      Here ’99er
      That carryon outside Heuston has a much to with the proximity to the Criminal Courts, and the Luas along to the District & Circuit courts
      Probably Family court too there in Pheonix House which is wha ? 20 30 yards from the Children’s Court, and the Smithfield stop

      1. Dhaughton99

        Luas yeah. Handy for dropping off deals and not paying the fare. It’s a place for easy touches. It’s there because it’s allowed to continue and there’s no enforcement. The rest is bull.

    3. RepeatTheLeaving

      Just pity “that lot” who have to look at culchies and tourists…

      Sure, the Bike 4 Work scam will get you a new bike cheap no bother. Easy come; easy go.
