I guess I could say "DC" but actually I live in Arlington, VA and the DC-VA divide is fierce.
I've been commuting to the metro or biking directly to work for a year now and on Tuesday, right before Christmas, my Trek 7.2 FX got stolen. I *loved* that bike. It was my first "real" bike that I ever bought, after a year of riding around on a bike that someone discarded on the side of the road. I don't even know what the model was.
Anyway it was stupid. The bike lock I was using was a Kryptonite U-lock circa 2003, which I had no idea until this morning has been considered pretty unreliable.
Anyway I just bought a new bike today, an upgrade really. Here's hoping my new lock holds up.
