Krazy Lock Dude!

U-lock, check. Rope, check. Hacksaw, check. Yeah, you’ll need the hacksaw not to steal a bike, but to unlock your OWN bike, if you’re in or around Williamsburg, NY. According to the Brooklyn Paper: Looks like a local is fed up with bikes crowding up the side-walks…so he has decided to take street justice into his own hands by gluing locks shut with krazy glue. Injecting the super glue into these locks almost seems self-defeating for an anti-bike vigilante who wants the hoard of bikes to…well…go away!? Hang tight fellas and kick that glue outta his hand!

For the full story check it!

Bicycle Portraits

Stan Engelbrecht and Nic Grobler are working on a photographic project (Bicycle Portraits) capturing everyday people and their bikes.  They need your help though! Visit their site for more info and possibly send them around the world!

Stan Engelbrecht is a Cape Town (South Africa) based photographer and publisher who has published numerous books, including ‘Miss Beautiful’ and the best-selling ‘African Salad’ ( www.dayonepublications.com ). He harbors a deep love for bicycles and has a keen interest in contemporary South African culture.

Nic Grobler’s interest in bicycles and cycle culture has steadily built up over the last 7 years as he found himself traveling and ‘living’ internationally from time to time. Spending so much time away from home and immersed in different cultures has converged his interests and attention to things that universally help increase happiness, like chocolate and bicycles. Finding that the empowering use of bicycles, as seen in various other countries, has not been adopted enough in South Africa, he is keen on playing a part in the changing of bicycle culture closer to his home. Design and animation is what keeps him busy otherwise. He currently lives in Johannesburg, South Africa

Thanks Rob for the forward!
