Bike Update [May. 22nd, 2000|04:03 pm]

Well, got the police report on my bike, but it turns out my insurance has a $500 deductible. They stole about $240 worth of stuff from my $600 bike, so basically, I'm left with the bill. Fun, huh? I'm going to buy a skateboard instead of fixing my bike for awhile. Here's my bike now, minus random parts:

Oh, but one good thing for the day ... I got my Palm VII, so I get to play with that.

Damn

You know what's really fucked up about this. Look at the pic, look how high your seat is. It looks like they took it completely out to take off your splash guard, then put it back in and secured it. They didn't steal the seat, they didn't leave it lying on the ground, they put it back in after they were done. That's pretty messed up.

Re: other people?

Sounds like somebody is puttin together a ghetto bike. How the hell can nobody notice a person goin around in a bunch of bikes and takin off individual parts?

locks

It's a bitchy thing to say, but with a nice 600 note bike with a quick release seat and tires you shouldda used 2 locks (one u-lock and one cord). Perhaps something to keep in mind for future bike use....

sucks though m'man...

Re: locks

You *can't* lock the fork ... there's no loop in it.
