Before you judge him too harshly, bear in mind he's living in Des Moines.

It isnt like they are great bikes. They are sturdy, bombproof tanks. Wonder what his plan was.

FTA: "...[shop manager] Brad Overholser said the bikes have 'minimal damage - some dirtiness.'"

Spoken like a true bike mechanic.

Dude rented 6 easy to identify bikes using a stolen credit card then left em laying all over town, I doubt the word "plan" has been remotely associated with anything he has ever done.

The remaining four bikes were valued together at $4,800

If you're going to rent out bikes, renting out $1200 bikes seems like a stupid idea.

Our subject is Tommy Lee Goines,
Who tired of walking Des Moines,
He found a bike rental,
But cops were judgmental,
So Fark's hall of shame he joins.

Didn't know they rented $1200 flying bicycles in Iowa. Very hard to peddle on meth and keep a straight line at the same time.

I don't know why anyone would rent bikes when most stores have free ones sitting right out front on a rack....

Dumbass tag is for subby who doesn't realize, care, or simply understand how reliable and sensible bicycles are for many transportation needs.

Either that, or subby gets a +10 for a troll well done.

Probably includes the price of branding them too (still pricey but, just meant it's probably not just bike retail).
