Huh?...I dont get it
Did you see the bike locked up?
because lots of commuters store their heavy locks/chains at their usual lockup spot to keep from having to drag them around every day.
I don't get it. Looks like someone left it there to use later.

Nice artistic angle, though
Anyone know how hard it is to pick a kryptonite chain lock like that? I can pick my krypto u-lock in ~3 minutes. That always worries me.

Well, I asked the lock what it was doing there but it blew me off.
The lock was located downtown in the city during the middle of the work day. So:
- If it were a commuter wouldn't the bike be there?
- If the commuter were running errands wouldn't he/she take the lock with them to lockup at the errand destination?
Until we get a straight answer from the lock, I'll assume that a rider either:
A) Locked up around a fork or something and the bike was taken.
B) Lost the key and cut his bike loose and salvaged the remains.
Man i alwasy leave my chain around... that **** is HEAVY...
And cant you see that someone already tried to cut throught the chain but didnt work....
Link to the right of the lock... theres two indents....
Proves it cant get cut through...
A) this were after business hours.
B) This were an apartment/condo/dwelling etc...
C) I'd seen a bike there before...ever (which I haven't). It's right outside of a door that I go in and out of a few times daily.
I've never seen a bike or scooter there nor this lock.
It's outside of a big office building AND there are bike racks that are never full not far away.
In fact, you should probably go back and do that to teach the owner of that pole a lesson.
OH GAWD, pretend I didn't say that...
Oh! Here's an idea: Maybe the cops or City Works took it because it was locked to something that it shouldn't have been.
When I worked at a big grocery store downtown, I left a U-lock on a parking meter all the time. My hours varied wildly between working at 4 AM to closing shifts, and at least one, but usually two weekend days per week. That left my lock affixed to a post, un-utilized for most of regular "business" hours.
Far and away the most logical explanation is that the owner left this here to access later.
Maybe it's an invisible bike? But I guess it wouldn't need a lock if it were. And man, how much of a pain in the ass would it be if you forgot where you locked your invisible bike?
