My favorites were a dude i saw with his woman riding on his rear rack. 15 minutes later, i saw the same dude trying to fix his rack because it was rubbing against the rear wheel.

Another was a hip lookin' dude on a real nice lookin' vintage cinelli(geared) with platform pedals and riding in flip flops. Don't even get me started on the tarck i was seeing.

The only redeemable parts of that trip were the smelly vagrants who got me some smokeables and the badass c'dale track with a full campy track group.

And when i was in Santa Monica the night before some ****er with purple veeps was doing wheelies in traffic while riding down the wrong side of the road at night without lights.

it was locked up on main street(i think thats what it was called). I think it was more in santa monica than venice. i didn't see anyone riding it, but i was half tempted to wait around to see if anyone came out and unlocked it.

This bike would probably look pretty decent if he would just put the bars on the proper way.

I really want to see a bar like that (maybe a bit shorter) with bar ends.

nope, we certainly do not have to admit to either of those two statements.

If the Tokyo part is true a dog collar and a luggage lock is enough in much of the area I roamed.

those bars look beyond stupid....I saw the origin-8 Stash bars this weekend and all I could think was wow must be a skinny geek who doesn't have any muscle above the waist.

Wow, I just googled "Toyko bike theft", and found this LA Times article.
That's amazing, like a mirror universe or something.

that was an entertaining article. thank you for sharing it.

i've been to japan once and o-m-g people are so courteous and respectful! its so awesome that everyone is so hospitable. but yeah as the writer says in the artlce, being in such a place will make you keep your guard down. fortunately/unfortunately, i've been raised in an OCD-like environment to always triple-check everything from locking all the door locks (knob, deadbolt), closing/locking all windows, locking the garage door and back door, closing all the car windows and sun roof vent (even on summer days), and etc etc and its kind of backfired on me to be more of a laid-back nonchalant type person. BUT i would NEVER be careless about my bike!

planning to get myself one of those bikeregistry locks. can anyone that has one tell me how much the whole thing weighs? must be a ***** to carry around heavy duty security like that!

I guess I should have elaborated, you had to see the rest of the bike and I should have taken a photo, but my point is I don't see the usefulness of such bars, they are narrower than the pedals which means you aren't gonna fit the bike through any smaller a space regardless of the barwidth. Riding in tokyo/yokohama I used handlebar width to tell me if I could fit the rest of my body through a space, my body certainly isn't capable of getting that skinny and I am far from being musclebound........as for you last comment at my age I don't give a flying **** who wants to be my friend
