I found my holiday riding buddy.

"No offense taken, at all. I hope my response didn't imply that I did. I do agree with h' that it is victimless profiling. My point is just that in a non-competitive cycling scenario, like commuting, it is easy to make a bunch of mistakes…"

Chitown_Mike replied to Chris Hainey's discussion Bike locking fail?
"I meant no offense, and I hope you took it as such.  I know not every cyclist fits a mold, but I am one of those people that notice little details that others might miss.  A dinky lock on a nice bike would be something I'd see, but I…"

"I was violently profiled once while trying to reassemble my own bike. It was startling, to say the least."

OLB 0.1 replied to Chris Hainey's discussion Bike locking fail?
"Yes, it is profiling. There are plenty of people who don't fit a standard (or maybe just your) profile for a serious cyclist. I don't. I sometimes ride my nice (ish) road bike with clipless pedals in my sandels, cargo shorts, and a ratty…"

Chitown_Mike replied to Chris Hainey's discussion Bike locking fail?
"That's what I thought Skip.  I guess the best thing to do is keep a note, and possibly a picture, and peruse CL for missing bike ads.  I do from time to time and have given sightings to people before, guess that is what I will…"

"I'm pretty sure in this town you could take out a hacksaw, angle grinder, or even a gas-powered "partner saw" and start attacking a lock on a bike in public and nobody is going to say boo to you unless it happens to be the owner…"

Skip Montanaro 12mi replied to Chris Hainey's discussion Bike locking fail?
"I see a couple problems with this idea: Someone might get suspicious about you, then you'd have "some 'splainin' to do, Lucy." Perhaps more problematic, serial numbers can be basically anywhere on the frame (assuming one…"

Chitown_Mike replied to Chris Hainey's discussion Bike locking fail?
"Why I mentioned it was probably already stolen. Would it be wrong in a situation like this to find the serial number and run it through some different data bases to see if it was stolen and then notify the owner?  Or could that be looked upon…"
