The Chainlink

It was fun, not really, to discover this morning that my bike lock was removed from the bike rack in front of the building where I work (Clark & Jackson).

I have been storing my lock on the rack for the past three years without a problem.   There have been other locks stored on the rack.   All of the locks were removed when I went to lock my bike today.

I asked someone in the building and they said that the city would have removed the locks.  Is this a practice by the city?   Is their a rule against keeping locks on the bike racks?

This is the firts that I cave come across this.

DIBS on that Donut !!!

Bring your own angle grinder!


I have noticed periodic removal of bike locks left on racks. I wouldn't be surprised if this was one of those waves of removals.

Some racks get REALLY cluttered up with locks. It's always a risk to leave something in one place for an extended period of time.

I don't have a problem with leaving locks on racks, but I've never really understood it. Is it that much of a hassle to take your lock with you? Don't you ever make unexpected stops on your way to or from work?

And for the record, I despise dibs, but the analogy doesn't hold up here.


"It is a bit of a hassle to carry 2 ulocks as well as a cable lock with all the rest of the crap..."

Who is whining?



I'm not the one casting insults and profanity!

Of course not, NO Chainlink member is allowed to do that on THIS forum!
