Bolt cutter are at least two foot long to cut anything good..
I take a chill pill to keep me from going all nuts and hammering dumb asses. Maybe I will go off my meds and look for people with cutters.

That's just saying "Don't go.", for a lot of us.

We'll be starting a Bicycle Club Camp next year and were planning on doing some bait bikes and Theif-Shamings. Now i see this is allready happening!
If anyone would like to collaborate, join our camp (we'll be doing bike repair and bringing some jumps [hopefully jumps with flames] as well), or just watch some thieves get shamed, PM me!
So how'd it go Elliot? Did you bring the bait bikes?
