My locking up strategy, hopefully it will keep her safe….
I tried to lock the front wheel and frame, but these kryponite locks don’t see wide enough some how.
Still can’t help but feel the massive front lock draws attention to the fact it might be valuable. The rear lock is ok and perhaps a cable from the rear to front would be less obvious.
Then I reckon you’d be safe, especially with the complete lack of bike flashness.
Yes, it might, I think a clean bike also stands out from the others too.
This post reminds me I need to read up on Sheldon brown, all these years I have been locking it up frame and wheel together when I didn’t need to, and now i know also to put the chainrings facing away from the stand as someone else told me to protect it from damage. As they say you learn something new everyday!
Anyone willing to cut-up the rear wheel will steal whatever they can in whatever condition.
Ideally would lock through both, but the lock isn’t big enough, which is probably another good thing.
I hope big locks are a deterrent and they don’t get tested.
