Bait bikes are all the rage right now, much to the chagrin of bike thieves. Among the many benefits of this new technology (you might your bike back and thieves will definitely get jail time), are videos like the one below which shows the thievery in action. 

Just to show everyone how fast these crooks work in San Francisco, NBC national investigative correspondent Jeff Rossen and his team locked a bike to a tree in San Francisco and not only captured its theft on camera, but tracked it down to a random house and retrieved his ride.


Empowering isn't it?
