Brooklyn Industries decided to decorate their shops with some tall bikes (those are specially-made bikes that are, well, taller than regular bikes)-- unfortunately, they did not get the approval of the anti-corporate bikerati gangs. Very quickly, all the windows of their Williamsburg store got defaced with etch. It's sad, because the company was donating $2 from the sale of every messenger bag to the Recycle-a-Bicycle charity. Sometimes you just want to tell people to chill the hell out!
