  • Two locks through the spokes. If this was you...

    ...you should be ashamed.

  • Those bike racks are terrible for locking up at. You can't use a d-lock at all. You need to use a long-ish cable.

  • Ooh I've got a good one, I'll take a photo tomorrow at college. Watch this space.

  • I saw this the other day, I was passing on a bus, couldn't take a picture and so I have accurately re-created it with a drawing. Either some joker somehow climbed up and fed it over the top or it's just plain magic

    Yeah this is what I lock up to at work. Have to use my Abus chain from rear triangle and just through spokes (and Krypto mini on front wheel). Luckily I can see it on CCTV all the time.

  • Not only is the locking shit, but the Garmin cadence/speed sensor is on upside-down

    double fail

  • Superb!

    Those things are easy to lock up to, through the rear triangle and rear wheel... Job done... Even with a mini Evo... Grey matter shortage in effect...
    And great illo, Ade... :]

  • Where's that photo of that bike chained to the electric cable?

    YouTube- bike prank

  • Some friends and I got a stationary exercise bike from a skip and locked it up on some bike racks in the city centre in York. It was there for well over a year.

    Well, I found it funny anyway.

  • You cant cycle in the centre of York anyway...

    The ones at my work are so close together that you can only put the bike straight in by the tyre, so I'm pretty sure a mini evo wouldn't reach. Well, the other day someone locked theirs sideways across 5 of them. I'd say that's a way to not lock your bike.

  • Harsh but fair...

  • Crazy fool secured it with a common tree living animal...

  • Guess you can't even trust your own peoples these days... shakes head

  • Common? I heard they were rather upper-class.

  • world's gone mad... saddens me on the inside

    even the animals turn on us, the upper class ones are slightly thinner and no good for protecting bikes, its down to their healthier diets

    I like how the drawing depicts the rain on the bus window. Impressive work.

  • That's technique's called "the Cameron" I think.
