Re the Dutch lock, I have one, they are extremely convenient and actually quite hard to break, but obviously only secure your bike against riding away, not against carrying it away. So they are only good for the shortest of hops into the baker's or a café where the bike stays in sight. - Yes, you won't even leave your bike unlocked when it stays in sight, lest you think you can beat the thief riding your own bike...]]> bc1b9618-275a-11e2-ab76-1231394043be Mon, 05 Nov 2012 07:09:03 GMT

One time, some thug watched me lock up four bikes as he walked to his car; he kept repeating, "That's a PEEWEE HERMAN LOCKUP!" Annoying, but he wasn't getting the bikes!

I go fewer and fewer places where I could take the bike inside, so "scoping out" available lockup spots has become an art. Is mine/ours more difficult than the next one over? ALWAYS, sometimes more so than a motorcycle!]]> 2a8ede78-22df-11e2-b884-1231394043be Tue, 30 Oct 2012 15:14:26 GMT

Nobody pays any attention to another person (thief) at a busy bike rack.

Also consider a good, heavy (15kg+) bike, which will be less attractive to cut and-and-go thieves.]]> fc7ccd38-da1d-11e1-be49-1231394043be Fri, 25 May 2012 10:52:23 GMT
