I work in the South Bronx where the RED jump bikes are. I often see roves of 4-6 Red Jump bikes with the local youths on them riding around FAST and harassing everyone in the neighborhood. Two guys on a jump bike recently robbed someone and took off on the bike.

Can't wait to see what happens when they have citi bikes to ride too

Those city bikes suck. It's slow and brakes poorly, more dangerous being on it than walking.

Are they going to improve the biking infrastructure in the Bronx? It’s been working well in Brooklyn and Manhattan for me when I’m not on my own bike, but years ago I biked through the Bronx and it was not great. I’m not saying it’s a bad idea, just that I really think infrastructure to support such is important.

LOL at these posts, great stuff.

E180th at Morris Park Ave would have been a great location for the CitiBikes, there's plenty of side walk space in front of the enormous 2&5 station.

especially the one on Gun Hill going towards Montefiore Children's Hospital, that's a killer.

I would not have either. But I'm glad its worked out for JUMP?
