Remember: Lock your wheels

YouTube user shankbone wrote a song to accompany this security camera footage of a guy ripping off his bike’s wheels while his frame is locked to a fence in Brooklyn.

Found on Metafilter, where one commenter also noted Bruce McCullough’s Open Letter to the Guy Who Stole His Bike Wheel and Bruce McCullough’s Open Letter to the People Who Watched the Guy Steal His Bike Wheel.

Boing Boing: Urban Mobility Bike

pumak_bike1_l-01.jpg Boing Boing, a directory of wonderful things, posted on an updated Urban Mobility Bike from Puma. We posted earlier on the original UM, in regards to travel and being urban. The bike is a design collaboration to benefit an earthquake charity and another example, like the Biomega at DWR, of bikes as designer items and pop culture.

Photo of the Day: Shopping with Bike

She was downtown, at the corner of Stark and 6th in Portland, checking out the shops, purse at the ready … on her city cruiser bike. Argyle socks and the Portland Northwest urban look are a definite contrast to a stylish New Yorker.

Readers Write - Disc Brake Road Bikes

Bike Hugger picked up a comment this week that is near and dear to my biking-heart. As I’ve posted (twice), I’m a fan on disc brakes for the rainy season.

From Japan (Part 8): Gifu

(note: the keyboard also pissed me off with some really strange, apparently haunted font that wasn’t rendering. I retyped Mark’s post – Byron)

In Gifu now. The keyboard is really pissing me off. Anyway, heavy truck traffic along all the roads. No real mountains yet. Stayed at this surefly hauted inn Outside Hikone. Woke up with a centipede crawling over me and weird mumbling voices in the dark. Homeboy is a wuss in traffic, just because the trucks rub your packs as they pass. Eating out of Kombini, which is japanese for conveience store. Not too tired — more posts hopefully later.
