Chances are, you have heard cynics say that anything on your property that isn't bolted down will eventually be stolen.
Well, apparently even that particular security measure is not always adequate.
Just the other day, someone ripped a planter off a North Side friend's porch. And, yes, it had been bolted to a metal plate affixed to the porch. So yanking it free must have taken some doing.
Aren't people swell?
1. An astonishingly high percentage of bike riders must be thieves.
2. A lot of people must be willing to buy bicycles or accessories from sources other than reputable bike shops — sources that may or may not have obtained the bikes or parts legally.
What else is there to conclude? If you talk to bike riders, you never stop hearing about stolen bicycles, ripped-off seats, et cetera.
