Harsh message for a bike thief

Don't worry, no one has stolen one of my bikes. One of my longtime cycling friends, Doug Kaufman, sent this to me with no message other than to circulate this to my cycling friends, so here it is!

A close look at the flier above the stolen bike poster indicates the poster probably was put up in the New York City area. If I ever had my bike stolen, I don't think my poster would be as harshly worded, but I sure understand the sentiment behind it.

Ok, so, as you may have read, my design MISSING was born because I lost my bike at the beginning of the summer.

As it happens, it seems that the origin of this declaration of two-wheeled hate is a Threadless t-shirt design. And it turns out that the original rage was thoroughly misplaced:

my design MISSING started out as an actual flyer that I put up around my dorm when my bike was “stolen” earlier this year… Later, I found out it had been towed because I chained it to a fence with a “no bikes” sign on it. Whoops!
Notice how the sugn is puffy and duct taped on all side, there is a t-shirt hidden behind it.

No you know the rest of the story.

Good Day.
No now knows no.
Great sign. I hope the thief read it and at least felt bad. I had my bike stolen and then bought the biggest chain EVER for my new one. It is a PAIN though, to carry it around, b/c it is so heavy!
