Because people that start threads can lock them, although they are not supposed to lock discussion threads, just BST threads.

Didn’t realize you could lock your own thread, wouldn’t think about the specific business as it’s done all the time, usually a thread is locked after shenanigans get out of hand between peeps

Please don't lock threads, outside of in the BST when an item is sold. I wish Tim could come up with a way to restrict that feature to only the BST. Apparently, it can't be done.

 

OK that was my one Admin moment in 2+ years. :laugh:

You didn't do or say anything wrong. ;)

On the topic of bikes, in this day and age with the recent canal behavior are you guys comfortable leaving pretty much anything on your bike while down on the rocks?  I'm putting together a canal bike and trying to decide on storage.

I always bring both rods and bag down to the water.also have a lock and chain but never used it.

You cannot trust anyone. My cooler,rod rack,bike rack is locked.

But anything can be cut and taken.

That makes sense.  I was gonna zip tie some wide PVC tubes to one of the racks to use to store jigs but maybe I should get something removable.

Put a motion alarm on your bike. I got one from Amazon for $15. It comes with a remote. I generally don't leave anything on the bike but have this in case I do or if I go into a store and have to leave the bike on my car...

How does that work? 

Loud alarms?  Tracking?
