Bike theft video goes viral

A video showing the theft of a bike in the Plateau from where it was locked to a city sign pole has been shared a lot this weekend, evoking demands for more city bike racks.

However, city facilities are not always reliable. On reddit, one scooter user reported locking his vehicle to a city rack and having the rack itself lifted. The posted photo shows the weakness of the hardware used to attach the rack to the sidewalk.
