I just saw a Cervelo locked up in SF with a tiny cable lock.

What are people thinking???

Maybe the front tire skewer is loose and there's a camera pointed at the whole scene.

My neighbor commutes, does errands, visits friends etc. on a Cervelo. At least he carries a U-lock, but I still think he's crazy.

hey justin,

you should've taken a pic and posted it in the Road Bike section of this forum. That would've gone-over really well...
