    The carbon-fiber gravel bike was entirely unaffected by the tremendous magnetic field emitted by the hovering alien spacecraft.

    I took it Friday. I think that the damage occurred sometime over the last month or so.

    Crazy! I wonder how it was done -- ie, I'd think if by car, the white posts at the perimeter of that bike-rack-zone would have been destroyed as well... Which made me wonder if it was vandalism (without a car).

    I am guessing based on where this was that 2 things happened:
    1) Car turned right too tightly off Quaker and crashed into the racks (2 on the left side of the photo that went down). They'd have had to fit between the still-upright bollard and the sidewalk which would have been tight, but a smaller vehicle making a very sharp right turn at a high speed could have done it.
    2) Car trying to parallel park backed into another one of the racks (damaged one on the far right, no bollard to protect this poor innocent rack)

    Despite Big Bird’s adamant protestations, nobody believed that Snuffleupagus and his family had been along for the ride...

    Saris has discontinued their "Staples" model of bike racks in favor of the new "Dominoes" model.
