Bike theft is going up by as much as 230% in some areas of California like Santa Monica! That’s right, bikes are getting nabbed right and left! So do yourself a favor and DONT LEAVE YOUR BIKE ANYWHERE!!! If you have to leave it, at least use a U-lock! Which by the way are referred to as “D-locks” elsewhere. Stay smart, stay safe, stay fixed!
Honestly, if you saw this happening to your bike would you be pissed or impressed? Anyway, point is, don’t just lock the front wheel!
Your bike is your ride, your gym, your style. Your bike is you. So lock it up the right way. Or better yet, don’t let it out of your sight. But whatever you do, DO NOT LOCK IT UP LIKE IN THE PICTURES BELOW! (oh, and make sure it’s Fixed!)

All done in Photoshop and Illustrator, so no laws were broken.

Was justice served? Glad you are OK Roadblock. Full article below…
