Remember the '70s? I was reviewing them the other day while watching "Three's Company". It seems in closing sequence they show a bike rack in the foreground after ol' Jack has fallen from his Huffy. This is one of those dealies where you slide the bike's front tire into the slot and lock it securely by said tire. Hopefully the bolt on your tire is rusted on from the Pacific salt air or your frame may go missing.
Ironic part: (not to beat this issue to death) There are several fairly new grocery stores in town. They all seem to have bought their bike racks right off the set of this wonderful show. Like I have said before, "what good is a bike rack that only locks up twenty year old bikes?" I stand corrected, it should have been "twenty-five year old bikes".
I guess it's only fitting in an era of huge cars that get five miles a gallon...
