odd angle on the rack to which it was locked. And had a wooden pole
(evidently the support appropriated from a near by tree) sticking
through it. Closer inspection revealed the pole was stuck through a
standard intact, if badly twisted, Kryptonite U lock.
Someone tried to steal an old low end Trek commuter bike by breaking
it's Kryptonite lock with a very long (at least 6ft) lever. And failed.
AND broke the rear wheel off the fork, for that matter.
