But that’s not the worst part, oh no:
“Worst part was, I was holding it pretty close, waiting for a table at a restaurant. And *poof*, gone so quickly.”
(What a nice story – it’s like the Golden Gate Restaurant Association and the Mayor’s Office got together to write the copy, huh?)
All the deets here on the Twitter.
Appears as if the owner of this electric blue Trek FX or something 7.3 hybrid bike abandoned it after a few parts went missing. And when I say a “few,” I mean just enough, maybe only one thing, to make this particular owner to give up and leave the rest to the midnight vultures of Market Street.

Note that the pilot took the time to use a proper U lock along with a cable to protect the wheels.
But that’s not enough these days! It’s your headset and your seat and your seatpost – that’s what you need to protect on the mean Streets of San Francisco.
Here’s a shot from a day or two later. The fork and the brakes are now gone too:
The hand tools necessary to crack open the lock or cut the cables, well, they’re too bulky for the little monsters to carry around all the time. But wire cutters and hex tools, your Allen wrench assortment, that’s all you need to operate a bike thief bidness.
I suppose the end to this vignette is the SFPD or DPW coming along to crack the U lock to make room for other pigeons to park their bikes right in front of the Great Nordstrom / Bloomingdale’s Mall of Market Street. You know, to continue the cycle.
On it goes…

Did you know that the Fox Network goes around and starts up national holidays? Apparently, they’re on their way:
“National Dance Day on July 31, 2010,… was created by So You Think You Can Dance executive producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe. Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton a long-time proponent of healthy lifestyles, introduced a National Dance Day resolution to promote dance education and physical fitness across the U.S.”
At first I thought these kids from “Illegal Talent” were filming a Spike Jonez* / Fatboy Slim Praise You remake but that proved incorrect:

See you next year!

“This will undoubtedly be the biggest club soccer match in the history of Northern California,” said Gustavo Marquez, one of the promoters of the event.”
Alta California in the hiz-ouse, boy-eeeee. Here’s the new roster of Real Madrid players who are coming to San Francisco, people like Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, and Iker Casillas.
Supposeably, you can get seats for $35 per, but the cheapest tickets I could find on TicketMonster were $55 plus a $10 service charge plus a $3 printing fee. Oh well. You might be able to get some sort of Club America fan discount – check out the local sponsors if you want…
So go on in and enjoy!

I ride into your town on a big black trojan horse
I’m looking to have some fun
Some kind of trigger-happy intercourse
“Club America salutes you” says the girl on the door
“We accept all major lies
We love any kind of fraud
So go on in and enjoy…
Go on in and enjoy!!!”
