That's terrible, but he is doing it wrong. The "U" lock goes around the rear wheel, with a cable extended to the front wheel.

I HATE thieves! Yes, that includes most politicians.

I see 2 or 3 a week like that around what this neighborhood has become....all thanks to dopers.

Still blows my mind how a place that was THE area to be in 10 years ago could have sunk so low in just a few years. Its happening so fast you can watch it. Twice as bad now as when I moved in 3 years ago....3 years ago a simple mag-lock on the entrance door was all we needed, now its security in the building and soon we will be going to a pass system with guests having to sign in and be escorted JUST like working at an airport.

I was running errands w the baby and I walked by that and laughed. Then I thought others may get a kick out of it too so I took a pic. I cant see the brand name clearly, does it say "negligence"? lol

I can see the Craigslist ad now: "Nice bike, low miles, needs new tires".

Oh, hell ya Tony...on the bright side, it IS kinda funny to watch them crash all tweaked-out

Sitting on a park bench, sipping a Tim Hortons, and enjoying that summer entertainment should be fun this year.

Not in my part of town. Although, I think it's funny to see a grown man hunched over a kid size BMX bike.

Had a brand new bike aircraft-cable locked to one of my project cars. A %#$^ preyed open the door (flimsy door lock) in the middle of the night and proceeded to take side cutters to the individual strands of the cable lock. Came out in the morning to find the 3 day old bike was stolen and the cable laying on the ground. Cable locks don't work if the would be crook has a bit of time on his hands. Keep this in mind next time you want a bike lock.

We bike a lot as a family. So many great areas to explore and venture into and out of. Parking. Parking is damn near frightening. Leaving your vehicle at one of the local hiking trails is a crap shoot. The drudges of society prey on this. We have bypassed many a park in hopes of greener pastures up the road.

I do carry a small cable lock. Only as an initial deterrent. I most definitely try and plan even local trips without having to purchase something from a store and leave me locking up several thousand dollars in mountain bike and gear.

MEM posted more than a silly meme. The crime of theft is so rampant here that the reality of theft is just as apparent driving the streets of Anywhere, USA as it is in UpNort', Canada, Eh. Street drugs and mental illness keep our children from playing outside, but the next big Kardasian moment keeps us from understanding the downfall of these allowed fears.

I am just hoping that the year and a half old Boxer Shepherd mix we adopted the other night enjoys the out of doors as much as I. So far so good. Going to throw a pic or two up in time. I want him to settle into his wonderful new life first.

Yes, doggie photos please.

I also have a "nice" bike. Whenever I go riding, I bring along whatever items I think I'll need during the ride. So there's no need to stop anywhere and leave the bike unattended. Because even though this is a fairly safe area, it's still better to be safe than sorry.
