A cycling buddy of mine, made a trip to the local Cumberland Farms for a gallon of the milk. Unfortunately, he made the mistake of not locking his bike. At most, he was inside for a couple of minutes, enough time for someone to snatch his bike. Obviously he should have locked the bike, but that still doesn't give someone the right to steal a bike. The most annoying part about this situation is that he is 6'5" and his bike frames are 65cm. I doubt that I could even ride one of his bikes and I find it unlikely that whomever it was that stole it could do much better. The bike also had a big wire basket on the front, not exactly your high theft bike profile.
I've certainly been tempted to just leave my bike while running an errand, this is clear reminder why I shouldn't.
