Bicycle Theft Thieves and Thievery (Happy Endings)

Casey Neistat BikeTheft.

There gave been TWO GREAT articles this week in the national press about happy endings to bicycle thefts.

I will not say this really means anything.  The rate of bicycle thefts is astoundingly, horribly and unacceptably high. And even though law-enforcement rates high in these articles, I am mot sure that that is the norm.

Also, only in NYC, when Twitter followers you know have other Twitter followers with 50,000 followers, is such an outcome likely..

More likely, the reality of the film, Bike Thief, where Casey Neistat conducts an experiment in New York City, locking up his own bike and brazenly trying to steal it, to determine whether onlookers or the police would intervene (no one does) is more likely.

But anyway, read these. They will make you feel good.




When thieves stole his beloved ­commuter bike on a busy street in broad daylight, PATRICK SYMMES snapped—and set out on a cross-­country plunge into the heart of ­America’s bike-crime underbelly. What he saw will ­rattle your frame…


How Twitter found my stolen bicycle.
