Just in case you forgot, New York City is really not a safe place for a locked bike. Back in 2005 Van and Casey Neistat shot a video, as an experiment, of the two of them stealing various bikes in increasingly outlandish ways without garnering as much as a head turn from the countless passerby. The brothers return with this video of them, doing the exact same thing, and with pretty much the same end. Nothing entirely surprising here, but definitely a healthy reminder to get anyone to invest in a proper lock and to keep an eye on their bike, even when it's locked up.
