  7. Down at docklands it was jus the polish cloth.
    Sounds like they were running short by the time they got to the bottom of the city
    Looks like they are really pushing for market share

  9. Yep - got a free cover.

    Had the same plastic bag on the bike yesterday that had the polishing cloth in and saw another on the bike today so just thought they were a bit stupid to be targeting the same section but low a behold a free bike cover - probably about the first useful freebie I have ever received!

    If anybody really really wants one there are a ton of bikes lined up at the corner of William and Bourke with as yet "unclaimed" bike covers hanging of the handlebars.

    Is it technically theft to take something that was free and the person didn't even know they had received it?!?!?!

  13. Oh no,

    my crime of the century is all going horribly wrong.

    The shame of a hefty prison sentence AND bad ebay feedback looms!!!!

  14. I know,

    as penance for my crime.

    I won't actually put the covers back but I will keep them at my office and every morning I'll run out and cover the bikes that I took them off as they arrive and then remove them just after 5pm so everybodies bikes stay dry.

    I'll just have to live with the bad ebay feedback.

  15. Prison is nothing compared to bad ebay feedback.

  17. Just run out and put them everytime it rains, who knows you might get the odd day off.


    That's true, prison you can get out of with good behaviour, bad ebay feedback is for life!!!
