    Oh wow, that's awesome. I'm from Cincinnati too, and know a guy who goes to a shop on Colerain so I'll ask him if it's the same one.

    Where abouts in Cincinnati are you? By the way, I love your PBS avatar. ^_^

    Over by the Jim Beam plant. Yeah, toobad the guy got assaulted for his trouble. But I'm glad it was nothing more than that.

    I have to wonder if that chase was totally necessary, if the shopkeep recognized the bike and really was sure enough it was the stolen one (to give chase) wouldn't it have been simpler to keep the thief distracted at the counter, while someone runs outside and locks it?


    This gives me a great idea for a security device(use normal locks too, this is last resort), suppose you add a wheel lock onto your bike, which by default is open and does nothing. However if a secret key is not inserted, will automatically engage once the bike reaches a given speed... nothing like going over the handlebars in traffic to stop a thief dead... (maybe have an audible alarm also go off)

    ^^ Nice. I just hope I wouldn't forget about it.

    "A little bit of justice being served feels really nice."

    Indeed, made my day, thanks for the link.

    What, with this and the BF member who had his Pista stolen and got it back, and had the thief arrested, is the tide turning?
