I got my IRO Mark V about a month ago and have loved riding it every day. It's certainly not the most sought-after bike, but it's a great ride and is flashy in its own right. I got the NY Fahgettaboudit u-lock but rarely do I leave it locked for an extended period of time (I'm a neurotic paranoid type). Today, since I was running late to work, I decided to bike because there's an atrium for employees where we can lock our bikes up (you need a key and obviously a bike to get in).
I set aside my own anxieties, thinking it'd be fine in a secure place for employees and for the most part it was. Except when I clocked out and went to unlock my bike I noticed a staple deep in the middle of the back tire.
Why would anyone do that?
The atrium bike area is used by employees at two different (but structurally connected) libraries. I'm banking it was an employee from the other library because younger kids work there and I wouldn't expect anyone from my library (older, presumably more mature--but I may be wrong here) to do something like that.
Ah, should I expect this? Has this happened to anybody else?
Sure, it's only a tube, but why be a dick to me if I haven't been a dick to you.
