Stompers Harry and Tharik alerted Stomp to more cases of ofo bikes being abused by members of the public.

Harry saw three of the bikes chained up at Block 125 Geylang East Central.

Tharik came across one bike with its lock and seat removed stored near a resident's laundry rack at Block 96 Aljunied Crescent last night (Apr 9).

"This could be considered an act of theft," said Harry.

"These bikes don't belong to these people yet they are claiming ownership of them by chaining them up.

"This is just very selfish behaviour."

Ofo is one of three companies offering bicycle sharing services for the public.

All rides are currently free as part of a trial period, and ofo's policy states that bikes can literally be returned anywhere, provided that it does not obstruct pathways and remains visible.

This is not the first case of ofo bicycles being abused. Check out the other cases that Stomp has been alerted to.
