SF bike racks

Third street:

Not bad for arty racks, you might be able to get 2 bikes on each.

Church and Market. Virtual Racks:
I locked to them my invisible bike and all was whole.

Sigh..are staple racks not arty enough? How about staple racks with polka dots?

The visible rack looks to be bolted to the pavement.

If that is the case, it is relatively easy for a thief to undo a couple of bolts, bend the rack up a bit and slip the chain, cable, lock and bike off of the rack. Could be quicker and easier than breaking the locking system.

No opinion on the invisible rack.

I don't mind arty racks if they are nominally useful.These meet that criteria.

If you look at the photo in original:
You can see they used some insanely large security allen bolts that would be pretty hard to get out quickly. I don't think you could slip a proper lock off the end parts they are pretty big.

The invisible rack has some faults that I can't quite describe, easier to see though.
