    Ya know, being vague only works if people know what you're talking about.


    I'm surprised that the bomber didn't ride a fixie. You really want the reliability of a strong chain and reduced chance of drivetrain failure.

    Is this about retrieving a stolen bike? If so, a precinct number and/or case number would help the mysterious owner tremendously. Otherwise I suspect a cold call to a general number for the NYPD will end up being a more humiliating and frustrating experience than when the bike was discovered stolen.

    Good luck. I love recoved bike stories.

    It was the vehicle used for the bombing of the Marines Recruiting Station in Times Square.

    I got yelled at for refering to those as "nerd levers" to a customer when I worked in shop.

    *embarrassed*
    After I posted I had a hunch this was something different than what I originally thought. :imstupid:

    Dammit! Why did the guy have to bring bikes into the terrorist scene. Especially in NYC where all bikers are already treated like ciminals.

    Remember those stickers that say "this bike is a pipe bomb"? I suspect those are going to start getting people in trouble.

    Huh...why? She doesn't ride? :rimshot:


    JBP, you made me snarf my cerveza.

    CBJ, I feel for ya'. It was the strangest thing to adjust to when we moved out of NYC, no longer feeling like a hoodlum for riding my bike.

    Then how could he post on RM?

    He would have surely blown himself up.

    PSP is getting arrested. I wonder if his girlfriend will wait until he gets out of prison. If he gets out of prison that is.

    The real question is would he actually be dumb enough to commit the crime and then post a pick of the get away bike?

    He might be stupid enough or not stupid enough, no one can tell.
