Or you’ll end up with a giant gaping butthole like this.
This started about a year ago — crackheads (or pros) know that “Brooks” logo means $$$.
Getting rid of your quick-release bolt isn’t enough protection for a $100 saddle.
i don’t think crackheads are out stealing fashionable bike saddles, these grabs are probably hipster-on-hipster crime
Yeah. And if you ride a more contemporary bike with 3×9 tiagra brake lever/shifters they are a biachee to buy/replace too
Perhaps it’s time to torx bolt everything as the new bike fashion accessory.
buying a designer European saddle comes with it’s burden
ahhhduh, kinda goes without saying…
time to break out the bike chain in a bike tube from saddle rails to rear triangle trick.
sf denizens not exactly the best at locking up their bikes.
maybge they took it with them. ummmm. ok.
Plenty of people in the Tenderloin pay good money to get a gape like that.
That happened to a friend of mine in the TL – and I do wonder what happens next, where for instance would a crackhead sell it (and what asshole would but it)? Or is this a crime perpetrated only by those in the know as Rod suggested?
either way, sucks.
Maybe if you just rode a normal bike and stopped being a poncy bike snob, you wouldn’t have to worry.
