Anyone who's biked in this city for more than a week knows that basically our bikes are fucked no matter what we do. No matter how many locks and chains and cables you carry around, someone can still steal it if they really set their mind to it. Either that or they'll disassemble it for you in your absence.
Anyway, last Saturday night I left my bike parked on 15th & South Van Ness for about 90 minutes and someone slashed my rear tire. That's the start and end of the story. I know you're all probably going to be like "Oh well you should've known, leaving your bike parked there! You shouldn't have left it!" but come on, sometimes you just can't bring your bike inside with you. Sometimes you need to park it on the street for a little bit while you go drink jungle juice with your coworkers.
So there you have it - the age-old spirit of this meaningless, stupid and randomly malicious crime is alive and well in the Mission!
