Revolutionary Bike Security device revealed !

Tired of trying to find the right lock for your bike?

Worried about bike thieves ?

SixtyCo, a division of Two Really Stoned Guys Incorporated is proud to offer the latest in bicycle security and anti theft protection... the Mags 3000.

We are most proud of the fact that this new device is portable, environmentally friendly, and will never freeze in cold weather as long as you wrap it in a sweater. Unlike a cold steel bike shackle the new Mags 3000 can also keep you warm at night and double as a home security system.

If you are a single guy or girl, the Mags 3000 can also help you get hooked up... something a Kryponite lock can never do although your old bike shackles might come in handy after you get hooked up.

I dare anyone to try and steal this bike.

How appropriate that the bike and security device are surrounded by WEED!

What kind of dog is that Tude? The reason I ask is I've got one that looks just like that just smaller (tiny 100 lb) that we got from the shelter. He's definetly part lab and something big - our guess was Great Dane though I've seen labs mixed with mastiffs that look similar.

We've discovered that the Mags 3000 also has a weakness for cats.

I will have to mount up a carrier so I can take Mags with me which is something you cannot do with the jumbo sized models.

Mastiff ?

Their poop is bigger than my dogs and they aren't nearly as portable.

Jumbo models, properly adjusted, run along side and will pull uphill.

'shopped.

If not, then the dog is likely an English Mastiff or a BoerBoel.

Would a Tennis ball not be all it takes to disarm the security system in the OP?

Jsharr, it scares the poop - transportable and otherwise - out of me how often my thoughts come out of your mouth. Er, I mean, keyboard.

Big problem:

The thief would steal Mags, and leave the bike.

That would leave the bike unguarded, and the next thief would steal the bike.

Our son has a mastiff / rottie / pitbull cross - it is only half as big as the mastiff father - who was 200 lbs.

You would think the cross would be a terror- biggest baby you ever saw but it would scare you to death as you looked it in the eyes while you were sitting down.

The neck of Gretel (the dog) is bigger than her head. We had to have a harness made for the dog - I just told the leather worker to make it like a harness for a horse - and maybe the same size. He thought I was kidding till he came to measure the dog!

The world's biggest dog was a Mastiff... Hercules has a 38 inch neck and weighs 282 pounds... he can fit an entire regulation basketball or a Miniature Pinscher in his mouth.

Ok this is actually great, but for a different reason. Chicks love cute dogs. Offer a doggie rental service and you get the security system and dates!
