Cyclists, beware

You’ve probably already heard this news, but I thought I’d pass it along: Kryptonite U-locks can be opened with a Bic pen. I am loath to try it with Erica’s or mine, as we don’t have a receipt for hers, and mine is about 5 years old, earlier than the recall that Kryptonite has announced. Either way, this sucks—for all of us urban cyclists, especially.
