Yellow bikes redux 

Frank Stephenson (who co-authored the original Berry Bike story) reports that Lexington KY has a similar problem. Today he posts that DC and Paris have programs that tie bikes to specific users, perhaps solving the tragedy of the commons issue.

I spotted a yellow bike from SCSU last month, in downtown St. Cloud. The rider was in bad need of a shave and a shower and did not wear the usual student clothing, making me wonder whether he was the target market for the bike.
