Where's my bike?

    What's missing from this picture? I'll give you a hint, it was locked to the bike locking post. The irony of the situation is that I had locked up my bike to go register for www.mssociety.ca/en/events/biketour/default.htm

    Digg it! digg.com/offbeat_news/Guy_s_bike_stolen_while_registering...

      Ironically, there's an article telling people not to use those posts today in the paper.

      That sucks. If I see a guy riding a bike that looks like yours, I'll be sure to push him into traffic.

      Chris, save the bike though.

      I totally think Brad should sue the Toronto Star for publishing not one, but two articles on how to do just this to the bike posts in Toronto.

      Oh man Brad, that's terrible. A very sad picture. Let us know if there's anything we can do...

      As much as having a bike stolen sucks, I have renewed faith in humanity (or at least in my friends). So far I've had 3 offers of bike loans and 2 offers of money loans to buy a new bike with. I will find a way to do this ride. If anyone wants to help out with sponsoring me please visit

      The other really fun fact about this whole situation is that this didn't take place on some quiet sidestreet.

      This happened in the middle of downtown Toronto at Church and Bloor in the middle of rush hour. 50 people probably watched this happen.

      Where's a hatchet-wielding vigilante when you need one?

      I just read about this ring-post vulnerability the other day.

      Vulnerabilities should generally be disclosed and described, incidentally. Otherwise, only the "bad guys" know about it and the rest of us think we're safe and secure and the city takes no action.

      I'll push the guy over and then beat him with copies of the article.
      I've written to Silverman helps.. so, hopefully he can help.

      I heard about this on AM680 the other day, that city workers were going to start beating up the bike posts with 2x4s to see if they could figure it out.

      Really sucks to lose your bike like that. I haven't trusted bike racks around Toronto for years.

      No, He took a picture of the bike an hour after it was stolen! Sorry i couldn't help myself. You know you walked into that one!

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called bikes and safety, and we'd love to have your photo added to the group.

      I am sorry for you, Bicycles always get stolen....
      In Holland you have to use a lock kosting twice the price of the bike if you want to keep the bike....
      Foolish world, isn't it ?

      if the ring on the post so people could lock up to it is defective ie it's too easy to remove then is the City at fault?
