Either downtown or somewhere along the Milwaukee corridor up as far as Logan Square. Looking to make a quick web short about bike theft prevention. Feel free to send me an email at jason@activetrans.org. Thanks.

Yesterday, I was paying attention to whether signs had bolts at the base.  A sign at the NE corner of Wrightwood and Clark (outside the 7-11) was missing a bolt and had no sign at the top.  The pole was wedged in the base and didn't move.

More disturbing were two poles outside apartment buildings.  A sign on the SE corner of Wrightwood and Hampden and a sign outside 2650 N Lakeview were missing bolts and the poles were easily removed from the base.  I took photos and sent them to Alderman Smith and CDOT on Twitter.

I think the buildings' management companies are removing the bolts so they can remove bikes.

I spotted one a couple of weeks ago outside Binny's on Grand at Franklin. I told store management and security about it, so it may have been addressed already.

You could always get a wrench and make one of your own since it's for educational purposes. Maybe get some more permanent hardware and show how grass-roots activists can help out fellow cylcists by permanently fixing neighborhood poles.
