Apologies if there is a similar thread, but what is it with vandalism and bikes? Let me explain. I was in the city last night and came across a bike that had been clearly knocked over by vandals (pretty sure 3 guys I saw knock over a street sign 2 mins before were the same ones). Anyways, I wasn't going to touch it, but as it was leaking oil, I picked it up for the owner. I have a photo of the number plate and bike on the ground. However, it got me thinking how many bikes you see knocked over in the city at night. It is insane. What I don't get is, people don't walk past cars and think, oh its a bit funny to key the side of that car. So why do they walk past a bike and think it would be funny to push the bike over. Do they not realise the magnitude of damage caused or is there some other reason, such as a dislike of bikes? As it is, some poor bastard will be returning to his pride and joy damaged because some meatheads decided it was a good idea. I need to go down a police station today and report it. Why do you think bikes are such a target? Because it is so easy?
