I sold my replaced Kryptonite lock to this guy tonight and he was a strange character. He had a nice bike - a 2003 Pista - but he had some wacky things to say about it. He kept thinking of ways to destroy his bike so he could replace parts on it! If you're reading this (guy to whom I sold the lock), take no offense. He had a cyclocross rear tire and intentionally skids and skips just so he can replace it sooner. He also had duct tape on his cranks to keep the bolts in. He really wants a sturdier frame to support his weight (250lbs) and knows a steamroller would be good, but instead keeps replacing parts on his pista instead of saving up for a new frame. He also mentioned that he likes to use his current kryptonite lock to hammer his crank onto his bottom bracket and kinda complained that it has been failing on him recently. Man! This guy was a trip. Anyone else know people like this? It sounds like most people on this forum love their bikes and do everything they can to preserve it. Or if they hate it, they save up and replace it with something better. But this guy seems to love to throw his money away on a bike he knows isn't what he wants.
