Bait bikes are all the rage right now, much to the chagrin of bike thieves. Among the many benefits of this new technology (you might your bike back and thieves will definitely get jail time), are videos like the one below which shows the thievery in action. 

Just to show everyone how fast these crooks work in San Francisco, NBC national investigative correspondent Jeff Rossen and his team locked a bike to a tree in San Francisco and not only captured its theft on camera, but tracked it down to a random house and retrieved his ride.


Empowering isn't it?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
