    your bike is hot....??

    Today I had my bike chained up outside SAIC and when i came out there was this little green card in my spokes. It read;

    Hi.
    I just stopped
    to say that I
    think your bike
    is hot.

    Anyone else in Chicago get one of these or have any idea who is doing them? There was a website too...I dunno, not that I mind but i was curious if anyone else knew what was up with this.

    Each day a reminder of my mistakes, Each day a reminder of what it takes.

    That happened to me too, a few years ago. Someone left a note in my front wheel saying something to the effect of "Your bike is hot".

    A few weeks later, in a completely different place someone (with much less girly handwriting) left me a note that said: "give back that which is not yours"

    I dunno, In either situation I think I'd prefer to be confronted face-to-face.

    hmm, I recently had a note taped to my handlebars that said,

    "you want to sell this bike? call me"
    and there was of course a phone number

    never got around to it though, and damn, my bike would be considered FAR from hot by standards these days

    Damn, no way anyone would put that on my beat up bike. I'm jealous.

    I left a note like that on someone's bike a few weeks ago and never got a response. I did, however, never see the bike again at its normal locking point.

    hahahaha, now that i think about it, i probably wouldn't lock it up there anymore either.

    either way, thats awesome.

    I think it's a terrible idea to leave a note like that. It would be far too easy for someone to see it, steal the bike, and sell it to you for far more than they could pawn it for.

    Cool idea. Reminds me of the "you are beautiful" stuff you see around.

    If I see a bike I recognize I leave a note for the rider saying hi. If I don't recognize the bike I just leave a note saying nice bike (but only if it's nice). I feel that I'm making the world a better place in the process.

    I've got a problem now,.. how am I supposed to tag the hot bikes I see in my area? The only time I see them is when they are being ridden, and trust me, putting things into a person's spokes while he is riding is not a good way to win friends and influence people

    How about saying to the owner: "Nice bike" ?

    The only thing I've ever had stuck to my bike is one of those 'HAVE YOU BEEN SAVED?' jesus pamphlets
