    I don't understand why it's locked... You couldn't pay me to steal that.

    I think I would've locked it through the rear triangle, I'd hate to lose that beauty.

    I agree.

    I see a lot of the parking lot posers with real expensive bikes who only ride them a few feet into the trail these days.

    But for the record I put so many miles on my carbon HT on the daily, all uphill to. So not all of us riding lightweight XC hardtails are posers.

    Wouldn't it be great if the guy came back and someone had him a new X-Cal or Fantom 29 pro setting there for him.

    That's not duct tape - that's GORILLA tape. Totally safe.
