Must have been a pretty stout knot.

Noticed this a little while back in front of Gene's Delicatessen on Lincoln Square.

Yes, that is a towel being used as a lock

Maybe the seatpost is really stuck in the frame and the guy is at the end of his rope because it's too low for him and can't raise it.  He's hiding and watching, hoping a thief will get it out for him.

I think the goal there is to have the bike look like a bait bike....

This was at 5:45 AM at the Elmhurst Metra station. The locking cable was not even run through seat rails. A quick stretch and twist and away it goes.

Was this a sting? The light blue bike in the foreground had a cable through the frame and wheels but not the rack... and just a cable.

Where's the blue bike in that picture?

If you're talking about the grey bike, I'd say it's more likely someone hurriedly locking up that missed snagging the bike rack with their cable.

Ha. Yeah. I missed coloring day in 1st grade so I just guess. On second look, the greeny'ish bike... Hopefully it was still there when the owner came back. Though with just a cable on a bike like that?
