It's Bike Month - which means there are scads of neophytes out there
nationwide giving cycling a try. Oh goody! But, oh baddy - it also
means more improper locking - and we all know there are predators just
licking their chops at the thought of stealing all or part of your
bike. So we want to do all we can to preach good locking technique and
We need a sage in these times to remind us how easy it is to roll your bike. Once again enter the immortal, Bicycle Habitat mechanic Hal Ruzal
to give us the straight dope in what he's calling "your final warning"
in this last chapter of our exclusive trilogy. Let's hope the third
time is a charm!
This time around Hal's not only grading bike locking ability of anonymous locker-uppers,
but he also shows you how he secures his bike so you too can score an
"A" (or at least have a decent shot at an A- or B+.) And if you love
the humorous anecdotes and musings here, don't miss our first two
chapters: "Hal Grades Your Bike Locking" and "Hal (and Kerri) Grade Your Bike Locking".
