To The Tool Thieves Of The Redwood Forest

Postby Flyboy on Mon 4/May/09 8:34am

(the below assumes that the tools provided by Bike Culture at the shuttle drop-off in the Redwoods were stolen and not taken down purposefully)

Hi there scum-suckers.

yes you - you know who you are.
What sort of low-life would be so selfish as to destroy a wonderful axample of goodwill by a local bike store by stealing the tools they have provided for the good of all mountainbikers who either use the shuttle service or have the cajones to ride all the way to the top of the forest?

What disgusts me even more is that you are either a mountain biker or a forestry worker to have been up there in the first place and Im guessing your average forestry worker doesnt give two hoots about Park Tool cone spanners or allen keys.
So even worse, as a mountain biker, you have ripped off other mountainbikers for what? a couple of tools that were there for your use anyway?

It would have been worth you stealing those tools if the shuttle bus had arrived as you were finishing however. I would have loved to have chased you down the hill, along with 30 other riders to show you how we riding the shuttle bus on saturday morning felt about you.

I hope the biking gods curse you forever more, and that in a drunken moment, you let slip to other bikers what you did so that they can force-feed you an allen-key set rectally.

That's a bit shit.

I thought the tool board was a great idea. With this and the sabotage during the NZ Marathon champs/Highlander the Whaka forest has had a rough month. :(

That sucks to here. Sadly another example of how if something isn't nailed down in rotorua it goes missing.

Its an unfortunate fact that if something is freely available to many sooner or later somebody will come along and take advantage of the good will. :(

We can only hope that this person has some personal pride and returns the missing items.

I saw the tool board / workstand for the first time while sifting during xterra weekend, and though it was a great idea

It pretty much was, chained to that stand. I don't understand why someone would do this? That was really helpful, could make some adjustments to your bike and all that quickly and easily.

It's just what I believe, I'm open to evidence to the contrary. ;)

Redwoods Shuttle drop-off: You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.

I think you are giving this person a bit too much credit. I find it hard to believe that he/she could sort themselves out for long enough to commit 1 crime let alone 2. They probably can't read either so posting here will probably fall on deaf ears.

My reason for saying that is nothing to do with giving them credit, but that both crimes have been attributed by Rotorua posters to either mtbers or forestry workers - the possibility seems obvious that it could be the same person/group.
