StreetFilms Grades New Yorkers' Bike Locking Abilities

We’ve already seen plenty of video footage of bike thieves at work, both real and fake. But how about some footage on how to stop thieves in their tracks? Of course, our beloved StreetFilms have come to the rescue once again, updating a hugely popular video they made five years ago in which NYC bike mechanic Hal Ruzal graded New Yorkers’ bike locking abilities. The guy doesn’t pull his punches, but he does dispense plenty of useful bike locking advice in the process - and the improved grades suggest that folks have either learned a thing or two in the intervening years, or Hal has mellowed in his criticisms. Click below the fold for the original episode.
