Puppet Bike Update

By Chuck Sudo in News on Oct 7, 2010 5:40PM

Lot of folks have been writing in asking about the Puppet Bike vandalization we reported earlier. Jason, Master of Puppet Bike, sent us a second e-mail to clarify the damage. turned out Puppet bike wasn't so much vandalized as broken into. ''When I got there, the bike was not really trashed, but it was opened incorrectly and listing to the side. With the help of a friend I was able to close things up and go home."

Despite what happened, it didn't sound as though Jason was looking for an eye for an eye. "There are a lot of people out there who need help that they don't know how to seek (help). The person who did this is definitely struggling and I wish the best for them."

Puppet Bike will be back in operation soon. Meanwhile, here's another video.
