    I've seen it on a few, but usually if the bike is clearly abandoned, caked with rust, stripped, etc. They usually leave it on for two weeks than take the bike.

    I'll need to swing by the transportation yard and see what's there tomorrow morning.

    Bikes that the TTC cuts up end on eBay under the police auctions; I got a great Kona Lava Dome Lite for my friend for 10 bucks from one of those auctions.
    you mean they might actually be able to keep up now??

    i havent ever (the apostrophe key is stuck, forgive me) been to the auction, but ive heard about it. i would like to think that usable parts have a second chance....

    i wonder if there is a spring blitz to free up some parking spaces? i dont mind that idea!

    they were behind a fence. id be interested to hear if they were ok with garbage pickers. waste not, want not!

    "His first words were 'did you bike today?' I hesitated before admitting that I had, thinking I was going to get a lecture on how bad the roads were and how I shouldn't try to bike home. Instead he said 'man, you're lucky! I've been sitting in traffic for over 1/2 hr, and I've only gone about 2 miles. Some guy on a bike passed me about 20 minutes ago and I'm sure he's home by now'."
