I want to make fun of this, but I can’t. Back in ’98, after shelling out over $1,000 for a Gary Fisher Joshua, I did something just as stupid. I was headed to a bike shop downtown, and all I could find to lock it to was a parking meter, so I locked it up and went inside without putting much thought into it.
It wasn’t until I came out and saw that I’d just locked my new bike to a post that was no more than 4" high, that I realized how dumb I was. I was just lucky no one took it.
