    Yes, that was me. It's a Crust Clydesdale fork on a old budget Trek "mountain" bike. Unloaded, the handling is no different than a normal bike, just a little harsh because the fork is so stout. The...

    It'd be nice if it was harder to pick, but that still took effort and skill. Not a 5-second Bic pen job, a 4 minute, burglarious tools job.

    Yes, that is the nature of a PBL. The level of parking turnover isn't trivial; the more turnover there is and the more the PBL is used, the more potential for collisions. How frequently pedestrians...
