Hey! Thats my bike!

Hey! That's my bike!

Anyone living in Toronto last summer (or anyone who googles “bicycle news” now and then) will remember Igor Kenk. He ran a sketchy bike shop on Queen Street and was busted for stealing approximately 4 zillion bikes (and possessing some marijuana).  He was in court this week, and apparently he looks like Moses nows.  Or Charles Manson (I’m sure the sea-parter would appreciate the comparison).  As his court dates increase, so too will the buzz about book and film projects (the youtube clip is kind of creepy) based on his experience.  The good news is that bicycle thefts were down almost 20% this summer over last.  Read the story here.
