My mind is blown that even though the circle says to "lock bicycle to post', the individual locked to the bolted-on circle, and not the post.


I have some Cambridge bike wisdom for you: Cambridge is also home to MIT, and MIT students are bicycle-crazy. And MIT is one of the original homes of hacking, both in the computer sense and the sense of "doing interesting things in clever ways with apparently minimal or inappropriate materials".


Yep, Boston is in general much more into helmets than NYC is. The riding style is also a lot more lawless/dangerous. I'm not sure if there's a correlation. Great biking town, though -- you definitely don't want to drive a car there!

I wonder if I could get the discount if I walked in with the sticker stuck directly to my head...


Hello. Just found this blog. The first hitching post has been there so long that bicycles were not popular when the cement first dried. 'Course in NYC, it would've been stolen and hacked by now, I'm sure.


I think the first picture is referring to the actually post, like the post was already there and the ring was put on so you could lock it to the post with out someone just picking your bike up over it
