Must Watch: Bike Thieves Steal the Show when the Prank is on Them

Getting your bike stolen sucks. For some reason thieves think it’s ok, since it’s just a bike (or they’re just terrible people. Probably both). So rather than just sit down and take it, the latest trend seems to be setting up bike thieves in clever ways and filming the usually comical results. For welovecycling that meant arranging the European Bike Stealing Championships. Set up a bait bike complete with a powder bomb and celebratory band hidden nearby and you wait. Granted, the bikes weren’t actually locked up, but taking a bike that isn’t yours that isn’t locked up is still stealing.

Taking a more punishing route, the team over at TwinzTV are literally reeling in the thieves(warning – lots of NSFW language)

As the weather shifts, the wind chills, and the leaves fall, we enter into the worst day of the year for some, as others excitedly scramble trying to remember where they…. or someone else put their light charger. In the mean time, we had everything from awesome to odd this week. Bike locks are simply not what they used to be and TiGr, Abus and Hiplock brought us their own take. Sufferfest and BKool create new ways to make emerging from the depths of your pain-cave harder than ever, and a new dropper….. err, stem from 3SFtech.

So sneak a handful of your kid’s trick-or-treat candy, (but don’t be these parents), and look to see what you missed this week….
