Chop chop, always with the chopping, in this area:
If your bike hasn’t yet gotten chopped and it has a serial number on it, then there’s something the cops can do about it.
Otherwise, chop chop, always with the chopping, in this area.
A Question About the Mean Streets of Interim Mayor Ed Lee’s San Francisco: When To Harvest An Stolen/Abandoned BikeThursday, October 16th, 2014
Bike thievery is an occupation in San Francisco, America’s Capital of Bike Thieves, East of Manhattan.
The wheels and the handlebar are gone, but there are a lot of pieces I could use in my junk drawer.
And this rig isn’t even locked up.

Tracking That Stolen Bike Owned by The Today Show: From The Mission to the Mid-Market to 1729 McKinnon Ave in The BayviewThursday, September 4th, 2014
I’ll tell you, I actually got around to watching that five-minute clip from the Today Show about bike thieves in the West Coast Capital of Bike Thievery, San Francisco.
And I says, “1729, huh?” You see, that was the street address on the front door that that Today Show guy knocked on. And they showed the street itself, so I guessed a 94124 zip code and then excluded the first two hits (1729 Geneva and 1729 Sunnydale because they both didn’t make sense) by making this Google search: “-Geneva -Sunnydale 94124 1729 .”
And, lo, up pops 1729 McKinnon in the Lower Third:
It’s sort of funny how the bike thief made a bee-line to the Thieves Market at Civic Center – that’s what you could see when they showed the GPS track. Anyway, the next stop was a shed in the Bayview.
SF, you have a problem with bike theft – deal with it. Like, it’s national news, literally.
