Mountain bikes, crime, & an LBS on Law and Order.
Just finished watching Law & Order tonight on NBC. The first crime on this episode was about a guy riding a mtn bike past his victim while shoothing him dead. One of the ways Briscoe & Greene tracked him down is the CSI's took cast's of the bike tires. It was determined by the lab that one tire was newer then the other by the forensic's expert.
After some diatribe between Briscoe, Greene and the forensic's guy about cycling, bike shops, etc., Briscoe & Greene went to an LBS called Mike's Bikes.
The guy in the LBS told Brisoce & Greene that the "customer" or alledged suspect in the shooting bought a new tire, I forget the brand name. He also stated that the guy tried to steal some Shimano pedals but was caught in the act by the LBS guy and was told not to come back or he'd have a certain kind of crank shooved up his "you know where".
Aside from the new female D.A. on Law and Order SVU being shown riding a bike to work this is the most I've ever seen a bicycle and an LBS being involved on the show. I thought it was pretty cool. Even though it had to do with a violent crime.
