Like, Sheldon's the patron saint of locking your bike now? I'm missing something...

Many years ago I was visiting Boston and was in a bike shop in a suburb west of the city. The young guy in line in front of me was buying a Kryptonite lock. The older gentleman waiting on him gave him this advice: "Use the lock like you use birth control. Every single time."

I don't know if it was Sheldon. But I think about that remark every time I lock up.

You do know that Sheldon's not likely to steal it, right?

I don't have to leave my bike outside very often, so I can't say that I think about him while locking.

It was one of his writings that encouraged me to switch my brake levers to front-to-right and vice-versa. I do think of him often, when braking.

He will be sorely missed for years to come.
