There's this couple who live on the bock and lock their really nice Kronan bikes to the rack.

They use the bikes a lot and I've talked to the dude and he's a nice guy.

There was a program someone put forth to remove the dead bikes from the rack. I don't know who, but they marked the dead bikes with a red ribbon. If anyone didn't want their bikes removed, he or she should remove the ribbon (see previous post for more about this).

ANYway, the bike removal day came and only a couple of dead bikes were removed, from one of the racks. At the same time, this guy's bike was stolen. Same people? Mistake? Who knows?

Then, just this morning, this:

The other one's gone.
