Nextbikes trashed in Hoboken wind storm

Not sharing – Nextbikes toppled in wind – no one helps

All those people that “love” sharing of the Nextbike bicycles for their own convenience somehow turned a blind eye as yesterday’s windy conditions in Hoboken wrecked a bunch of them. “Someone else’s problem.”

Don’t you think that all the lovers of said bikes would be the first in line to help restore their nice, neat condition?

God knows, the bikes are probably all out of whack now, and present a hazard to the next person that tries to ride one. Like we said, bad idea. Remember the blizzard a couple months ago?

I feel bad for laughing…but I am anyway. Those things can’t be very road-worthy.

You can hear the pedals and clanking as a rider past. See the Council meeting for more complaints on the lack of mechanical integrity of the bikes.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
