The ideal urban bike cannot cost $1k

At least in Chicago it is a given that a bike used for commuting will eventually be stolen. Assuming that is true, a $1k bike is a pretty tough sell to the average commuter. The bikes look great and I'd love to ride one, but I can't use a bike that I'd have to worry about locking up outside.

Expensive urban bikes need locks and insurance

Dear Tony,

If you are worried about theft, I recommend a decent lock and insurance. For my rather pricey Pashley Sovereign Roadster, I use a Kryptonite lock, which comes with insurance. Total peace of mind! See:
