U-LOCKS AND BIKE LIGHTS NOW FOR SALE AT CALTECH BOOKSTORE
Rear lights are required by law in city of Pasadena, front lights in other parts of LA. Really, you need both. So if you're riding around at night, please use front and rear bike lights.
If you're still using a cable lock for your bike, please replace it with a more secure U-lock. Cable locks are easily cut in a few seconds with a cable cutter and are responsibile for making bikes extremely easy to steal by thieves. If you want to make sure your bike is locked properly, use a U-lock and remember to lock your frame, not just your wheels.
Caltech Bookstore now sells bike lights and U-locks. Tell your friends!
