That’s Cold! The Little Monsters of NoPA Have Taken to Snipping Spokes to Steal Bicycle Hubs

First I’ve seen of this kind of thing.

But the rim and tire remain so, like Auntie Entity in Beyond Thunderdome, the owner is free to rebuild.

    Self inflicted due to poor lock job.

    Well, what are you supposed to do then? I’ve seen it where there’s one U lock on the frame/post/rear wheel and another U lock on the front wheel.

    Is this an incorrect approach?
