Crap I messed the topic up, was supposed to be How not to lock a bike up.

This picture is probably old, but I've not seen it and maybe some of you haven't either, I got a good laugh out of it anyway.

There are two colleges in my neighborhood. At one, the kids are considered "smart". At the other, they claim to be "the smartest kids in the South". The MAJORITY of bikes at both colleges are locked either with cable locks, or locked to ONLY the front wheel, or locked ONLY to the back wheel, but with the lock outside of the rear frame triangle. The other bikes are locked only to the main triangle, making a "gift" of both wheels.

And these are the "smartest" kids in the South.

yesterday me and my friend mike rode to the mall
the bike rack is rarley used so we decided to make the best use of it
using his ny3000 and a onguard brute ls, we had each lock through our own frame and a wheel, into eachothers frame/wheel.

it was so funny i wanted to see someone try something

soemtimes this world can be a cruel place!

anyone have any tips for locking your bike to a (car) rack? I have a Thule and dont know if this can be done as the the straps are rubber and can be easily cut..
