Lock ’em up

We dirt riders don’t worry too much about parking the bike — that’s why we carry no locks nor kickstands, right? Just more junk rattling around on the brake bumps, and attracting those rutting bucks.

Just so, it’s good to note that Kryptonite is donating about 75 brand new bike racks to four American cities. This past weekend, they had ribbon-cuttings in Portland, OR (though some of the grumpier folks are grousing about it at BikePortland.org) as well as a Chicago suburb.

Course, as bombproof as the racks appear to be, the weakest link is still going to be the lock you use.
