( Specalized Roubaix locked up to a pole next to an Audi with RIMS! )
I know what all of you out there in the world of reality are thinking, free rear wheel! But the fact is, whomever , rode that bike to the beach rode home on it with two wheels intact. In fact bike owners have gotten so confident that now the mere presence of a lock some who implies safety. As this bike inexplicably demonstrates:
And even though leaning your bike up against a pole and casually. draping a lock over it is stupid, it doesn't bother me. And I don't want to get to much into locking technique, BikeSnob is the expert on that anyways There is however no shortage of stupid things here that do bother me. Take for example this Hummer H2 I encountered yesterday. I found it so visually and mentally offensive that the only thing I could do to make it right for myself was take a picture of it, post it on the internet and photo shop the license plate to read: DOUCHBAG!
