my bike got stolen :(
>>1720953desu we should adopt islamic law for cases like this
>>1720953I'm sorry, Anon.
>>1720953how did it happen?
>>1720953sux man, hope you have renters insurance to cover it, otherwise time to strap up and start hitting the homeless camps.>>1720954you should see what they do to bike thieves in africa, shit is brutal
>>1720953Wow that sucks. I've been there more than once.
>>1720964Meaning I've had a bike stolen from me more than once. Yeah that first comment was a bit vague.
That's rough buddy. What happened?My friend's bike recently got stolen but the cops actually managed to track it down to some crackhead camp. However it was mangled. Bent wheels, missing random nuts and bolts etc. He was so proud of it before that incident because it was in mint condition.
>>1720953Part and parcel of city life,
>>1720953 Maybe its time to stop using ancient bulky means of transportation?
>>1720953sorry anon, I think a lot of us have been there.
Okay guys, hear me out for a second. Bike theft is rampant among any major city, no amount of enforcement will stop this. So what if, instead of trying to solve the problem, cities just buy up a shit load of a single type of bike, and leave them around town like the scooter rideshares do? Just say "fuck it, y'all gonna steal it anyway" and let that be the public transportation budget?
>>1721186 Not my problem. I'm not leaving my property near garbage bins on a shady streets. I'm not paying for this shit.>"fuck it, y'all gonna steal it anyway"Joggers steal bikes to make cash. Not to ride them. They would pick fancier bikes anyway.
>>1720953did you lock it?
>>1721190What the fuck
>>1721109she looks like she has downs. Chinese are insects
>>1721205 Face is irrelevant but at least she is not obese
Diversity is our strength
>>1721209the woman ranking goes:God tier: good face slim bodygood tier: good face obese bodymid tier: plain face slim body, bad face obese body bad tier: bad face slim body
This happens to be all the time in Switzerland.
>>1720953sorry to hear that OP, tell us about it
>>1720953Thats what you get for being an anime avatar posting faggot.
>>1721238Cry about it on plebbit, tranny.
>>1721190What's the tl;dr? I despise long clickbaity videos that don't get to the point (the solution)within the first few minutes.
>Be me>Live in mostly white and asian, city filled with old people and middle income families>Nobody locks their cars>People leave their bikes unattended and unlocked for long periods of time>Leftshits see something wrong with this>Furiously import brown and black people>Crime suddenly shoots up for absolutely no reason>Everyone is forced to be vigilant now more than ever before and nobody trusts anyoneahhhh progress
>>1720953Not my problem
>>1721109Oh look, another dougn't
>>1721270>muh bike theft is bad>muh police don't care>let's put VINs on bikes>also registration, insurance, taxes, create bike theft police dep
>>1720953Should have kept it inside anon
>>1721284Diversity is our strength anon, if they start stealing stuff it's because you're not giving them enough gibs to live in human dignity.Also let me remind you this is not a predetermined strategy to ensure a 24/7 surveillance state with cameras on everyone's door and GPS tracking on your body. Safety does not come without sacrifice i'm afraid. You want to keep your bike safe right?
i dont leave my bike outside for more than like 30 mins and i dont use a shit cable lock i have a kryptonite U lock
>>1721109I passed a dude using one of these every day this summer on my morning commute. Dude looked like he was about to die any second and was a balding fatass to boot.
>>1721199>Joggers steal bikes to make cash. Not to ride themIt would crash the price for shitty commuter bikes and BSOs.
>>1721426This too, don't commute to places where you can't hide the bike away indoors somehow. My previous job had a parking garage that was only for mr shekelburgstein and his harem with cars, but they allowed everybody to park their bikes there.
>>1721269Anime is for trannies
>>1720953I've been there man it's rough. Rip my old GT triple triangle
>chicongo about to fire 3,000 cops for refusing the clot shotEnjoy your bike while there's still time
>>1721408It used to be safe…
I wish it was legal to leave out bait bikes and then as someone starts riding away with it you put a bullet in their brain. But then lawyers would probably start crying racism.
>>1721284many such cases
>>1721473no uKill yourself and your family, tranny.
>>1721612Sorry, he's right.
>>1721602Put out bait bikes with the cheapest lock imaginable late at night and sit in a car with blacked out windows. Whensomebody goes through the trouble of cutting the lock get out and beat the shit out of them and driveoff before anyone notices. Simple as

>>1720953In the capital of my country there is a serial bike thief for like 40 years now. He has a really high tier bike gear (the spandex suit, helmet, googles), but no bike. He goes near bikers with high end bikes (think the kind of people who compete in bike 'marathons' and shit) and he talks them smooth, then he asks them to let him ride their bikes a few meters to see what they're like, and he gives them the keys to his car. Of course they're just some random keys and the guy rides away the bikes. He has stolen a few dozens and they even have drawings of the guy, but it's really hard to catch him because technically it wasn't a theft, but a con, and that makes the procedure different. Basically all the biking communities know about him, but people still keep falling for him. Mexico city by the way.
>>1721630>i posted le chud pic, polturd nazis btfo!No wonder you only hang out on the shit boards.
>>1721631guy sounds based
>>1721632lel try not to make it look so obvious how hard you're seething, incel
>>1721631Based lad. Dabbing on those with the racing bikes.
>>1720953>how did it happen?how did it happen, op?
>>1720953Fuck it, get another one, no point crying over spilled milk. It's gone and it isn't coming back. Sure it's a paion in the ass but you have to get over it. At the end of the day it's an object, a cluster of molecules assembled for profit, you didn't lose a family member or friend, you lost a tool.If you ever find yourself caring that much about any tool to the point where losing it causes you to rush home, boot up your PC and post a paedophillic cartoon on an anonymous image board in the hope of getting attention you should probably think long and hard about where your life is headed.
>>1721631I knew the serial bike thief in my small town in the UK. he was chief thief through pure numbers. did he steal my bike? obviously. all of my mates? sure. was he stealing thousands of pounds of gear? no. he was literally stealing cheap BSOs from kids. no one knows what he did with those bikes but there's a rumour one guy caught him and beat him bad enough to get his own bike back from the stash and there were hundreds stacked up in his shed and every room of his house.
Found your bike, senpai.
>>1720953then steal it back pussy
>>1721228I like bad face slim body more than good face fat body. Being fat is inexcusable and shows their genetics are more damaged than a girl with a uggo face.
>>1720953thats what happens when you relax
>>1721693I ride around this city enough that I wouldn't want to lock up my new to me bike unless it was with a big chain, and even then for not too long.
I hadn't ridden a bike in years until I went to college freshman year and liked it. Got a new hybrid bike before sophomore year, cost around $500 I think. Got stolen within a week on campus because I used a crappy cable lock with it.After that I bought a used Cannondale road bike and haven't ever left it unattended in the decade since. I use a private locker on the subway but if I go into a store, I walk with the bike through the aisles unless they kick me out. I don't give a fuck.
>>1721305haven't seen the vid, but here you can already put police codes on your bikeI've heard that bike thiefs don't touch the bikes that have the dna stickers on them. IDK how exactly it works, but it apparently it works and it's for free.
>>1720953where im from if you lock your bike at the wheel they are just going to steal the body and other wheel.or if you lock your body they are just going to steal the two wheels
>>1721190I think we should just start beheading bike thieves
>>1721059please refrain from posting my wife hanabi in the future please
the bike must flow
If y'all would actually lock up your shit properly you'll be fine.Most thieves carry bolt cutters, meaning small items only should be secured by cable locks. My saddle for example has a cable and I use that to lock my rear wheel (as a fuck you), I use a cable on my front wheel that loops around a different pole of the bike rack. Chain lock looping around 2 pieces of the bike rack. Chain lock naturally around the front wheel and frame. D lock on the rear and cable locked to that. Saddle lock looped through the D lock as well. Everything removed from my bike including pump. To get my bike you have three options, hydraulic cutters which is what finally broke my chain lock. You can't really pack those things around comfortably where I live or a angle grinder or attempt blunt force breaking the bike rack then running off with a 25 pound touring bike... with 8 pounds of locks ontop of it.Now, what crackhead just happens to have a grinder and overpacked in aluminum/steel angle grinder blades? Very very very few. Go big or expect to have your bike stolen.Chainlock, Dlock, Cable, Saddle lock. Never have had my bike stolen even locking it up near sketchy places.
>>1724005the fuckers cut off and stole the handles, the velocity switcher thing and that spring it had in the middle. I even had a good metal lock and switched bolts on wheels so they wouldn't be easily removed. they always find a way
>>1721612You realize this is as pathetic as a westerner riding around on a my little pony bike, right?
>>1721228There is no such thing as a naturally good face on an obese "person." Makeup can sort of fudge it but fat is literally the most detrimental thing to facial aesthetics
>>1724251I don't think so, my election tourist friend.
>>1721238No, that's what he gets for watching reddit tier romance garbage
>>1721625You realize you're just giving trannies power by associating them with "X" thing right?Actually, I'll bet you are one of the trannies trying to take over the medium and make it yours.
>>1721190>add geo tracker>find bike later and prosecute whomever has it
>>1724766Subhumans pushing that propaganda can only be one of two things:-Election tourists that are oblivious to what you just said because they're newfags whose worldview is defined by twitter/plebbit trends and the shilling on /pol/-twitter trannies/SJW freaks trying to subvert the medium because they got too triggered in the mid 2010's by all the smug anime girls
>>1724973Oh yeah, and of course, whatever splinter groups of goons are still out there congregating and planning their shill raids on discord. Those autistic cave dwellers have an infinite hate boner for anonymous imageboard users.>inb4 rent freeDeepest lore spoonfed to anon.
>>1720953Bike like this wouldn't have been stolen.
>>1728106do you really think that dudes looking for their next hit of meth + fen give a shit
>>1721109Why is she not wearing a helmet? I cringed.
>>1721228>bad tier: bad face slim bodyFellas should we tell him?
>>1721932>>1724401>>1728224>t. milk drinkerchubby women are superior
>>1728202You think a crackhead is willing to get ganked over peddling a stolen pedocycle?
>>1728322when bikes get stolen they get transported, often by truck, to a bike chopshop where tweaked-out mechanics tear bikes down and rebuild them with different components to make them harder to track. then the rebuilt bike is transported to a different city to sell. it's like a one minute operation to pull that rear wheel cover off
>>1728464Recently bought a bike from Gumtree, this Indian guy met me at the train station and drove me to this industrial unit, he was a great bloke and we talked cars and house building etc on the way to the bike, anyway I told him I was going to restore the bike (an old Rocky Mountain) and hopefully enjoy it for a while befopre selling it on, anyway when we got to this place he said the strangest thing, he told me I had good energy and that he was going to show me something and that he trusted that I would never tell anyone else about it, I promised to keep it between us and so he took me into this unit.ALLADINS FUCKING CAVEBikse everywhere, frames, wheels, plastic bins full of components, all kinds of stuff, most of it probably garbage but there must have been some reasl treasures in there too because of some of the frames I saw, Kleins, a couple of Mountain Goats, at least one Salsa, possible another and then there were road bikes about which I know little but there were two Roberts there that I saw.Long story short the Indian guy rented the unit to a Jamaican, the Jamaican used it to stash, strip down and package bikes, some he sold in the UK but most were shipped overseas to contacts in the West indies and the EU. Anyway the Indian bloke told me this Jamaican was a lying theiving bastard and so were his friends, he said he knew they stole the bikes and he knew they stole from him on occasion, so he liked to sometimes have a dip into their stock as way of restoring karma. He also told me that if I ever wanted to come and have a proper look and sort out a few choice items he would let me have them for the price of a good meal.Fuck niggers.
>>1728772dudetell the police holy fuck
>>1728772the landlord, and you, are just as bad it's not 'restoring karma' for you to buy stolen bikes.
>>1733168>thinking the police give a shit about stolen bikes>thinking the police would help you and not just find a pretext to arrest you for something unrelatedYou must be 18 to post here
>>1721602>>1721619Posting this in honour of bait bike anon who fucked himself up.https://youtu.be/EZHU4TMZNe8
the idea is to build a bike where every component is unique, noticable and traceable to youmy wheels are handbuilt by me, three yellow spokes by the valve on eachmy frame is custom painted by memy bars are wrapped in mismatched tape with very deliberate grease stains, you might even find me by fingerprints from thatmy cranks have anodizing worn right down to bare alumy lights are custom and non-removable aside from a standard 18650 tube battery bank powering themeven my fucking chain is personalized, i waxed it with candles from a birthday cake so it's got a pink hue to itthe most expensive thing they can sell is probably brakes, and even that will change once i finish my fully custom 3d printed drop bar hydraulics based on hacked up elixirs (abs can't handle it even when baked, gotta try cf-impregnated plastic, or smaller brakes to have more structure)nobody will even think of touching something as easily noticable, they'll steal the bso next to it even if my bike is not locked up
>>1721693lol I've ridden through that part with a white friend. Scared the shit out of hi to the point where he was mad at me. Good times.>>1721967Yeah, no. I have one of those uber Kryptonite chains and it barely gets used because when I go for rides, I take my bike inside when I go inside places, especially on Wilshire and Crenshaw. It's mostly used for nigger beating as is.Wanna go for a ride along Pico blvd sometime, s-sempai?
>>1724251I say the same to people around me that like anime; something along the lines of "You know that MLP and anime are the same thing depending on the country you're in, right?". They always get mad because it's true.I like anime as well, but I try not to be a fag about it.
