    Looking into stealing a bike

    There's this sweet ride quasi-chained up every day at the seaford train station. Bigass old school thing, fat tires, fatter seat, giant bulkyass frame, kinda like the bike rainman would tool around on. I coulda had everything except the front tire long ago (a locking strategy further reinforcing my rainman assumptions). Anyhoo this thing would be BEAST up at my ol redneck retreat near saratoga. Easy to tool around on the gravel roads whilst holding a giant booze chalice in one hand.

    This thing's been there untouched for 4 days straight. I'm pretty sure this dude fell down a manhole or something. Should I go for it? I haven't pinched anything since the second grade.

    Jetworks should have a nice one.

    I recommend giving him opinions on what specs to have on his bike.

    If its an old school Kryptonite or a new school knock-off, you can pop the lock with the body of a Bic pen (the 'round stik' not the clear pens you used to spitball in school).
