beth: 1, kryptonite: 0.
yesterday i successfully stole my bike. upon leaving my eye doctor appointment the other day, i had an altercation with my bike lock, bent my key, and had to walk 3 miles home. i returned later with some household oil and my spare key. still wouldn't open. then i went back with some DW-40, and it still wouldn't open. i was wondering if in fact my spare key was my spare key...and sadly realized it wasn't. i had successfully broken my only key and my poor old motobecane was hangin' out all alone on grand avenue in oakland for a couple of days. i surly thought someone would steal either my bell, yellow cable housing, or kickstand...but i was very lucky.
i got fred's hacksaw and headed down there yesterday. and fifteen minutes later sawed through that kryptonite shit. i was really surprised it didn't take me longer.
i guess steeling bikes is a lot easier than i thought. yikes!
(this is a video someone shared with me. yikes. i guess i used method #2. but he only took 6 minutes....but i am guessing a chain is easier to cut?)
