Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I'd do it but I don't have a bank account here, let alone a debit card. If nobody's done it by the time I get my acct set up, I'll probably print some stickers.

Did anyone else notice the arterial nature of the blood coming out of the P-O-S bike thiefs head/nose at the end of the video as he tried to open the door?

hmm. I thought there used to be a psychology research. Something about leaving a wallet at MickyD's with a "STEAL ME" sign and no one dared to take it. Reverse psychology..

If you you assault someone (even a thief), your lawyer would appreciate if you don't put the video on youtube. Especially when the guy isn't fighting back...Looks kinda bad in court.

Thieves will usually avoid a confrontation, because they're slimy little ****s. I like the U-Locking them to a post idea.

Seriously, take a good look at the very end when dudes trying to open the door, I swear you see him wiping or holding his face and blood seems to be visible.

Hey did anyone see that the bike thief had a helmet on. Now was it his helmet? Or did the dudes put that around his neck to form a handle.

Here's the story. I was having brunch on first ave and first street with a a couple of friends including Alfred .It was a pretty sunny day and a good there was a good amount of pedestrian traffic .Nothing unusual. Alfred went out to make a call and spotted someone looking over his bike. Nothing unusual ,he got a hot ass cannondale with hot ass wheel
s.the guy was average looking,had a helmet and a bag.looked like your average joe casual biker.Suddenly this dude gets on his knees and pulls out a drill.At first Alfred thought he wanted to steal his wheels,until he saw the drill.Is this what it has come out to?!people stealing bike with drills?Anyways as he was getting ready to drill the ulock,Alfred comes in the restaurant and yells,!yooooo someones trying to steal my bike,lets go get him.and let me tell you this ass hole tried stealing the wrong bike.first it was a bike messengers bike and second it was Alfred's bike and the motherFkr got a temper sometimes.so we roll out to this dude and start pounding him.my first instinct was to get my U lock and bang on him,but my bike was already locked up so , we bumbrushed this dude and started pounding him.Everybody is watching and wondering why this dude is being plumeted ,but at that point we don't give a ****.we had to make sure this ******* dosen't do it again.me personal i have had 2 bikes stolen,in like a month apart.**** that ****.he did't even look like a bike thief!so while pounding him i reach out to put my phone in my pocket and realized i had a camera on my wait.i pulled it out and captured the second half of the beating!
