The Vandal, Follow Up

Jan 29 2016

Richard let us know that if you don’t lock up outside the store in “the vandal” commercial your bike is getting gaffled.

Velocity Deep V with Cut Out Hub

Mobile Bike Shop

“I’ll try to document some of the chop shop action. I don’t get around those parts of the city often, but lately it seems even worse. I was slow rolling and eyeing up their piles once and a dirty lady challenged me with “You looking for something?” “Nope.” Attached are some teasers. Tip of the iceberg stuff.

The ditched Velocity rim is a perfect example of why “Sheldon Locking” isn’t the best. A 10-second hacksaw through the rim and the thief gets your entire bike – only having to replace a rim, tube, and tire.

Peace –
