Bike Thief in New York Video

Bicycle theft is a serious concern for bike owners and the Neistat Brothers filmed a video in New York City as to how easy it was to steal a bike. Shot with a hidden camera, the video showed a bike stolen in different locations using different tools. The aim of the video was to show how no one stopped the bike thief in the act of stealing someone’s bike in broad daylight at a public place. Ironically, someone even helped the bike thief remove the locked chains from the bike.
