Great, now everyone knows how to do it! ;) 10-15 seconds versus how long to jack open a U-lock?

"2x4s: they're not just for angry mob justice anymore!"

makes ya sick that they never tested the ring posts in the first place ( WASTE OF OUR MONEY )

Does the ring need to be cracked for it to work? I'm hoping that's the case, and I can just avoid the ones that have been hit by cars and snowplows in the past.

I think the city meant well. And the ring post program is a big success if yet not quite perfect.

It is quite unclear how many ring posts were subject to vandalism of this kind and how many
bikes were stolen.

I see more broken locks and leftover front wheels
rather than broken ring posts as I ride.

My two cents.

I'm wondering if they all shouldn't be "2x4'ed" to save the bikes.
