Maybe this would work in Tokyo, but it sure as hell wouldn’t work in NYC. I feel like it calls more attention to the bikes as well, since they’re both sticking out from the pole without their wheels secured in any manner. I’ve found it’s easiest to do this with a thin pole and each rear wheel, locked through the bike’s rear triangle; at least then your most expensive wheel is locked up. Anyway, saw this over on Mr. Snobby‘s Twitter and figured it might work for someone out there in your crime-free city.
