I saw this movie a couple years after it came out. I hadn’t heard anything more of it, till I saw this clip. It’s based on the movie “Bicycle Thief”, with poorer acting and swear words. If you can find it, check it out. This one’s sad too.

Bike thief beware.

Written by Ryan on . Posted in Film/video No Comments

I ran into a guy trying to jack a shitty Mt. Bike the other day. I didn’t swing, because I honestly thought that it could have been his bike.

Well after we talked a bit, he walked off cursing me. If it was my bike, or a friends bike, I think it may have gone more like this:

Bike thieves beware. We are everywhere.
