Lidl - quality or crap?
No doubt that it's crap at the Old Kent Road branch. I normally just say 'Tsk' to myself here and like nearly everyone else lock my bike to a convenient railing or other informal but secure parking spot. But today I couldn't help wondering if a lurking adult was debating whether they fancied 90% of a bike that I suspect belongs/belonged to a recent convert to cycling. The lurker could have been another cycling blogger I suppose.
I suspect the store manager will tell me there isn't much theft from the cycle racks, ignoring the reality that the vast majority of cyclists wouldn't dream of using it in the first place.
Let's hope the local police will lean heavily on the store manager to replace this thief magnet with sheffield stands.
