    You don't need an air stapler, a regular industrial one work just fine. Do you have the cover and foam? You just need it physically stapled on?

    Correct. I will have them in hand next week, been waiting to order until I find a means to install 'em. Industrial or air: neither do I have or have access to at my office job. ;0

    had a few questions from members about this "parking" area. brought the bike there again today.

    it's only 2 minutes or so closer to my office, but it isn't street parking which means i don't need to worry about a car knocking the bike over or even just love tapping it, as compared to 44th street "legal" parking. pff. legal.

    dunno. i did get a ticket there (36th and dyer) once, fought it by mail and was found guilty, paid it based in part on advice here. guess i'll count that risk of an occasional $125 parking ticket as my parking costs. kinda leaning towards there over the alternate side parking spots on 44th.

    Don't know if there are any owners on the thread, but these bikes are in a tow-away zone. Located in DUMBO.

    Fortunately, it looks like a production, so NYPD will only "relocate" the vehicles. No ticket or tow fee, I think. They move it a block or three away.

    I've seen this with cars, but never bikes. Dunno how they'll do it, but I'd love find out! :lurk

    I first read that as "a funeral and 40oz" and wondered where the hell this thread was going, and that I was changing my oil the wrong way all this time.

    Yes, and they may very well damage the shit out of every one or them

    Any time anyone gets their bike towed, they should claim damage. Take pictures, and scrutinize everything. Hell, make the NYPD pay to take your bike to Computrack to verify the frame is not bent. :deal

    Does NYPD actually tow for productions or is it private trucks?

    they towed my F*&^%$ Subaru AWD 3 blocks last year... and you know they didn't use a flatbed.

    I really shouldn't get started on my extreme hate for Hollywood productions in NYC and their off-the-charts sense of entitlement...

    This. :nod


    I work in an area which gets a LOT of film traffic. Last year we averaged about one major production per month. The Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre & Broadcasting will be quick to tell you that these productions make $millions for the city, and keep people at work.

    Maybe. BUT -- If you live or work in an area which gets filmed a lot, you're basically "taking one for the team." Those $millions don't flow to YOUR neighborhood. Not even the local restaurants benefit. (Ever see craft services? Nobody buys so much as a cup of coffee from a local shop!)

    These production companies should have to give everybody a voucher for garage parking if they want to take over. They could, too. But, instead, the city sends NYPD (yup!) to tow your ass our of the way.

    NYPD/DOT - I work near Silvercup and it happens all the time here. They just use the little trucks with the stingers. Surprisingly gentle when I've seen them around here, guys were pretty good at finding spots. AWDs are SOL :cry

    Funny thing is, apparently MTA and DOT don't get along, or at least don't pay each other - so when the MTA has to clear blocks to do trackwork (7 in my case), they sometimes have to get those wheel dollies and have a bunch of guys push the cars out of the way. Gotta love unions.

    To top it all off, the MTA often cuts down street signs (stop signs, etc.) to park the big crane trucks - then they bolt them back together. Recently I saw DOT come out, take the sign down, jackhammer the stump out, put a fresh post in and concrete the whole thing, lickety-split. Funniest thing I ever saw. What do I see last week? Same sign has a whole roll of duct-tape around a new cut/bolt job. :clap
