Hal Grades Your Bike Locking 2014
It's hard to believe, but it's been nearly five years since we last went traipsing around SoHo grading people's bike locking with Hal Ruzal from Bicycle Habitat. So it was time for the next chapter with the mechanic who wears pink-purple socks, admonishing you about how to lock your wheels, frame, and seat correctly.
The process is simple: Hal and I spend about an hour walking around, and whatever happens, I try to capture it on the fly. (Which is harder than it sounds.) This time it led to quite a few surprises and -- as usual -- many hilarious moments. Among other things, we learned that Hal has become an international celebrity. And wait until you see the scenes at a Citi Bike station. Let's just say Hal was impressed.
The previous three Streetfilms in the "Hal Grades Your Bike Locking" series have received at least 300,000 plays. Here they are for your viewing pleasure.
