"i still dont get it... why r people still using wd40 on or near their brakes... argghhhh!!!!"
Yeah, you missed the point. The guy said that he's sprayed WD40 over the pads deliberately, so that if the bike was stolen it wouldn't have any brakes. It's a little like cutting the brake lines on a car for the same reason. His problem, though, lo and behold, is that now that he wants to use the bike himself, he needs to clean the pads.
I'm fairly sure, I hope!, that it's just a wind-up, but it's a funny one all the same.
Uh...........kinda remiinds me of....lighting a match to see how much gas is left in the tank.Or.........."I'll let the air out of my tires and no one will steal my bike. Which is faaaaaar better than the wd-40 solution to prevent stolen bikes.
