PREPARED: Torch Makes Bike Theft A Breeze

It's not nearly as ridiculous as Saturday morning's Looney Tunes-inspired break-in, but Pie Hole Pizza Joint has now posted video of their delivery bike being stolen in April of this year.

The really interesting part comes around 3-1/2 minutes into the video.  It appears that this guy drives around with a torch in his back seat, just looking for opportunities to present themselves.

  1. hey bike thieves, cyclists stick together. If and when we catch you, expect to catch a u lock to the head.

  2. There's a reason I signed up for Divvy instead on buying my own bike. One practically has to enclose it in a metal box to keep it from being stolen.

  3. At the DIvvyide & Conquer event at 1871 a few weeks back, Elliot Greenberger of Alta Bikes (Divvy's Parent Co.) said that they've only noted 4 reported missing bikes from the 500,000 rides that have been taken so far this year. There's no secondary market for gps tracked cruiser bikes, apparently.

  4. What? Is that guy going to go and try and sell the bike to some grandmas?

  5. My wife got her bike seat stolen. How much can a seat actually net a criminal? $20?

    Oy, petty theft just kills me. Go rob a bank.

    Fat man drives away and comes back 5 minutes later.
    How funny would it be if someone stole his car while he was taking the bike?

    Do Divvy bikes really have GPS? Why?

  8. Some people just can't resist stealing something...anything...even if it's something impractical or useless. It's psychotic behavior.
