Is this yours?
Take a seat.
“I know you don’t normally do this but if you did normally do this then maybe you wouldn’t have to do the thing that you don’t normally do so much.
What’s wrong with the bike (above)? On first inspection it feels like your eyes are being violated but zoom in and take a close look at the lock and you see that this bike isn’t actually locked to anything.
All a thief has to do is stretch that cable by hand and then feed it past the saddle and around the rear wheel and suddenly Broadsheet are doing the thing that they don’t normally do.
The ironic thing is a victim of such a theft comes back to see no bike but a fully intact lock hanging off the bike rack. No doubt they are left scratching their head thinking Harry Houdini just nicked their bike using escapism. Not so, opportunity makes the thief and a bike ‘locked’ in that fashion is the easiest opportunity of all, it requires no tools, just a keen eye and your bike is gone in seconds.
So lock your bikes people, check out the Sheldon locking technique and make sure your lock is going through the triangle in the frame and also through the rear wheel too as it is often the second most expensive component on a bike yet stolen in seconds with a allen key…”
