Last night Matt went out with friends in Oakland, and when he returned to the pack of bikes, many had been stripped of parts. Matt had the Atomic 22 security set installed, so when the thieves could not steel parts, they sprayed his bike. Lame no doubt, but better then walking home, and replacing parts.
