Crap BSO will start falling apart
Well I cut up a brand new CCM BSO (Bike Shaped Object) which had (yes past tense
) no scratches, stickers were shiny and unscratched. So while taking off the crank I noticed it wobbled, taking off the brakes and the bolts were rusted, chain wasnt even rusted so the bso was a resident of a shed. Upside on a BSO like that is that no crackhead would want to make an effort to steal it if you were to lock it up correctly. Meaning a half decent U-lock and cable lock wheels.
Now think about this - Basic transportation. Crackhead or thief realizes the buses are done. They are stranded at the train station and the anger rises in them that now they have to walk for a long time to get back. What are they to do? Easy pickings is what they do.
