Did you catch them???

This also shows why it is important to have a Double Deadbolt type of lock!

i did not catch the guy, but i did see him cutting through the U-Lock with a buzz saw and when i walked up he looked startled and he walked off saying he forgot his keys which was obviously the worst ploy ever.. he was a large bald white guy, mid to late 30s.. he had a bag with all his shit in it  and dashed off while i checked out the bike and i called the cops.. i left a note with an old school email.. gave a full report and the cops actually watched the bike til the morning and rang doorbells in the neighborhood.  I work in a bar in Lincoln Square and as of today the bike was gone and i have not received an email but hopefully its in the owners hands!

Nice work! 

Great work jefe, thank you!

Wondering if you would be willing to take a shot at describing the exact tool the guy was using.

Was it more like this:

Or this:

Or this?

Not my bike, but I just want to say thank you for doing this!

Hey jefe,

 

What bar do you work in?  Me and my bro's will put it on our binking/drinking excursions!

Awesome! You deserve some good bike karma.


Verdammte broken links.

@NYC i work at the daily bar and grill on the corner of lincoln and wilson, hit us up we got beer and booze!

@h' i did not get a good enough view of the saw.. i would assume that its a small portable type, i did not see a cord and i think it was a rotating saw and not a straight edge like the last one.. 

@ everyone, thanks!

Could you explain the advantage of the double deadbolt? Just guessing here:  on a "standard" u-lock, the non-lock side slides out easily; a double deadbolt prevents this by locking both ends of the U to the cylinder (?).... So if you want to remove the it, you have to cut through both sides...

Thanks...

Good guess.
