  • Sheldon (Brown) didn’t tell me anything about locking the seat!

    • PwetStar

      The Sheldon Brown method has a potential weakness, though! However, it’s
      unlikely going to be common on a somewhat busy street since it does make quite
      a spectacle.


      • well he admitted to this in his article and gives the option to wrap your u-lock around the chainstay/seatstay. Also my frame has no room between the rear wheel and seattube to allow for a hacksaw..
