    Whoa, crazy Paul.

    Oregon is pretty rad. You'll love it out here. And we can shred mountain bikes together.ascott430 - "Was going to build it up into a fixed gear until I realized I'd rather spend money and time on mountain bikes."

    The head of the lab gets a better offer from another university. Kinda like anyone getting a new job at a different company, except their whole lab moves with them if they can/want to.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    Hey guys,
    I just joined the Prouty which is an event to benefit the Friends Of Norris Cotton Cancer Center with my team Boloco/B2C2. There are many events throughout the day including a variety of bike rides, walking, rowing, golfing, ect. I am reaching out to gather donations on behalf of myself and my team. Some of you may know I myself have dealt with the emotional turmoil and physical strain of cancer. I am insanely lucky that I was diagnosed early and treated effectively. Though I luckily never had to go through some of the more serious treatments, it was still 6 years of my life full of stress, the unknown, financial hardship, and family strain. Places like Planned Parenthood and Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center helped tremendously, not only in research and care, but also in resources and support. I ask you to join me in participating in Prouty, or please consider a donation of any amount to help.

    Thank you!'Cause i always say i love you when i mean turn out the lights.

    How thick is the ulock? I have a massive set of bolt cutters at work.Hi, my name is Jimi and I'm a bike addict
  14.  
    What's wrong with the lock? If you just can't get the key to turn and unlock, try spraying some lube or oil in it. And if it's really stubborn try some graphite powder. I've def had this problem before and thought my lock was shot only to have it work fine again.

    I used graphite powder when I had problems. If you haven't gotten it fixed by then, I can look to see if I still have some tonight and give it to Rock Dathe when he picks up the cages tomorrow.I have DTF pants. They're crotchless. -surprisefries

    I used graphite powder when I was having issues with my lock, but I found using chain lube was much more effective.
    • CommentAuthorben
    • CommentTimeJul 8th 2014
     
    Chain lube might get it unstuck quicker in the immediate, but will make it much worse long-term because of all the crap it attracts (and holds on to). Graphite doesn't accumulate gunk.

    That said, if the lock is already this bad, maybe your goal is just to get it open and then replace it, in which case it doesn't matter if you use chain lube.I have DTF pants. They're crotchless. -surprisefries

    thanks for all of your help, y'all !! <3

    it's a regular kryptonite mini lock. it got soaked when we got caught in the downpour after the fireworks and then i left for the weekend, and i guess it got super rusted then. stopped by Ace yesterday and they sprayed some TriFlow in there (sup alexi!). after 10 minutes of trying, i got it to unlock, threw it on my bike (definitely against my better judgement but i had an appointment!) and couldn't get it to unlock again after it was locked up for 45 min :(

    i tried for over half an hour to unlock it, then called the locksmith across the street. they came by after they were closed to look at it for me (and were so nice and wouldn't accept any $ from me!). The dude said all of the little things are turning until they get 3/4 of the way around. He tried a few things and said it was weird it wasn't working. He said i could either try to order new keys from Kryptonite to see if it made a difference, or cut the lock. He said putting the graphite stuff in there wouldn't help b/c all of the things ARE rotating, but they stop when they get to a certain point, and didn't wanna put more lube or whatever cuz there was already a bunch in there.

    Alex is on his s24o but imma wait to see if he can give it a try before cutting the lock, and i'm gunna swing by there on my way home today to see if the lube penetrated, but yesterday's downpour probably didn't help things :/

    i think even if i do get it open i'm gunna buy a new lock. i've had it for like, 8 years, i got my $'s worth!

    Also, the lock dude said that if i do cut it, to send it to Kryptonite cuz they like to do autopsies on failed locks to determine what happened to build better locks, which is pretty cool!

    i'll get it out of there within the next few days, one way or another. I"ll let you know what winds up happening!Must be awful, being so fluffy.

    That sounds like a similar issue to the one I was having with my 6 year old mini-u. The graphite and a new key worked for me (they'll send you your first set of replacements free), but the next time it acts up I'm getting a new one. 6-8 years is a pretty good lifespan to justify replacement I think.I have DTF pants. They're crotchless. -surprisefries

    My lock is pretty fucked, too, and the key only turns about 3/4th of the way sometimes. It sometimes works, though. Like, y'know, before I put it on the bike. Then when I need to unlock it, it starts dicking me around. I will also be picking up a new lock. Maybe you and I could be lock buddies. I'll use my current broken kryptonite to lock your bike up, too. Y'know, for extra strength.

    i think i have a spare key in my desk at home somewhere, now that i think about it. i had trouble last winter with it sticking and a new key and graphite did the job, but it was nothing like this.

    ben: the next time it acts up I'm getting a new one. 6-8 years is a pretty good lifespan to justify replacement I think.

    i totes agree with that!

    right? you can get it ON your bike but not off. must have something to do with the angle or something?? idk. we can be lock buddies. the more broken locks on your bike, the better!

    Don't forget to lube the posts as well...if they get rusty, they tend to stick pretty bad. I wouldn't cut the lock unless you absolutely had to.Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    Thanks Chris. I was asking him about someone's bike who was recently stolen. He told me he hasn't stolen any since the last time he was caught (which is the link sedition posted). I like to stay on good terms with him when I see him on a "keep your enemies closer" sort of thing.

    At weekend Red Sox home games for the rest of the season, MassBike are doing their free bike valet.
    They are set up at the end of Yawkey way and Van Ness.

    If any of y'all go to sox games on bike, definitely park there so that it can become a permanent fixture.
