How do you steal one? I thought it locked out the hub when an unauthorized user tried to use it or something?

Alas no you are thinking of Lime or other dockless system. Often times people may return a bluebike and not pay attention to if it is fully docked, or sometimes they will leave it next to a station if its full. In those instances, enterprising folks will take advantage.
