That rack would make it difficult to lock the bike's frame to it, except at the ends of the rack.

Thats why you dont lock your bike up on those with all the other knobs. Obviously the guy who designed the rack is a knob too and hasnt ridden a bike since he was 12 years old.

That's about how a buddy of mine locks up his bike... when he actually does lock it up.

I don't own a bike lock.

I also don't know where the keys for my home's front door are, and I leave my garage door open pretty much 24/7.

Ahhh, it's nice to live in a tiny community in the middle of nowhere with good neighbors.

That really sucks. But the bike owner should know better.

Same buddy who locks his bike like the above also leaves his front door unlocked when we go out or his garage door open when we go for a late night ride.

I can't figure out if he and his wife just live in a good neighborhood, or if they have some terrific karma. Nothing, as far as I know, has ever been stolen. Not even his Honda CB350 in which he leaves the keys when it's parked in the garage...

We also leave the keys to our cars in the ignition, or in the glovebox if we're feeling saucy (back home in farm country, not buffalo)

Do they fix that under warranty? Or is it something you can repair at home yourself?

On the same, totally off topic . . . um. .. topic of living in farm country, I got wicked psyched this morning when I realized I was closing in on a tractor a few miles from home. I mean, for once, I was going to PASS SOMETHING!

Unfortunately, he turned off in to a field moments before I reached him.

lol, was it my dad?

excellent use of the word "wicked"

you could always turn into pasture and bike circles around the bovines.

Heh. I didn't even realize I'd wickeded in that post until you pointed it out.

Unless your pop works on the Holmes farm, it wasn't him. And if it was, that would be kinda spooky, since I think I'm related to them all.

Something tells me my wimpy little 700c x 23 tires wouldn't get very far in a rutty, muddy pasture. Maybe I need to break down and get a mountain bike after all.

You're kidding, right?

The Holmes family is like twice removed or something so we wouldn't be "real" cousins at least!

I'm kidding. We're not Holmes. I hope I gave you a heart attack. But not a real one. More like a tickle, really.
