    Re: gbikes. The main security feature is supposed to be that it’s an unbelievably bad bicycle. But people still take them, which should draw our pity rather than our ire. The furthest afield I have spotted one was at the west end of the bay bridge bike path.

    I actually spotted this one just yesterday outside a cafe a Broadway and 15th Streets in Downtown Oakland (seen in the back of the photo).

    Nice. Is that a permanently-installed bike pump? I just walked past there less than an hour ago and didn’t notice it.

  • Prinzrob

    Yes, it is a permanent pump/workstation, installed in front of Awaken Cafe by the Lake Merritt-Uptown Oakland Association just last week. We’re hoping to get some more installed on Telegraph soon as well.

  • aslevin

    on Caltrain this week saw a disguised stolen google bike – painted gray, except the google colors showed through on the basket and inside of the chain guard.
