Lockup Locations
With bolted on wheels, I'm pretty safe securing my bike with the Sheldon Brown method, or even just around the frame sometimes. The best place to lock up though is always closest to where you're going to be. Not just so you don't have to walk far, but so the bike is within eye and earshot of you. You can't rely on high traffic areas; most people don't bat an eye at suspicious activity around a locked bike.

On campus here, the best places to lock are in front of the buildings (generally University Ave). The side streets are just asking for trouble with how secluded they are. Around town, there is a lack of bike racks and bike parking areas, so you generally take a signpost or parking meter. Chains are especially good for this, unless you get a large (and vulnerable) u-lock.

Of course, the safest place to lock my bike would be in my apartment!]]> e849528e-34cf-11e2-8adb-1231394043be Thu, 22 Nov 2012 10:10:33 GMT

There is no place safe outside that is not monitored. So the safest place, would be in my garage or at work, inside. At work I can either park inside in a spot that has a few other bikes locked up or a couple hundred feet away from my desk in an empty cube.

The safest place on the bike to lock up on is from the front wheel that has quick release to the frame. Usually lock up to a pole or rack from that location.]]> 889bb4cc-32c6-11e2-8943-1231394043be Mon, 19 Nov 2012 19:58:25 GMT

But if you are locking in public, I believe a good rule is to look for somewhere that has a lot of eyes on it - so many, in fact, that a potential thief might worry that the owner may be there watching the bike. Nothing in my mind could be safer than locking right next to an outdoor cafe - who's to say the bike's owner isn't that gentleman right there eating that panini? And even if he isn't, wouldn't the dozens of other people dining there tend to notice a dude walking up to a bike, whipping out a hacksaw and wailing away at it while they sip on a coffee just 10 feet away? No I think the thieves will move on to a less conspicuous target. And if you want real security, lock at the same cafe every day, eat lunch there yourself, get to know the staff by name, and tip them VERY well. After that you won't even need the lock.]]> 30bfc710-328b-11e2-a97b-1231394043be Mon, 19 Nov 2012 12:53:37 GMT
