Re: best ways to keep a bike from being stolen?

Bolt cutters? You should see their series-IV chain! EACH link is thicker than my fingers! My friend bought this 2 metre long one and for a laugh I draped it over my neck, like you would with a snake at a zoo.... I was not strong enough to lift it over my head again....

Talk about getting trapped under the bike (chain)!!!

Re: best ways to keep a bike from being stolen?

I have a 8 foot aircraft cable. The ones on aircraft carriers that the plans hook onto to stop. Also I have an 150 pound Akita and a 140 pound Doberman. I live in a high crime area.
If you can afford it I would say to build a shed with a steel door and buy a dog. I had a bike alarm but it annoyed me going off in the middle of the night for no reason. They prob have more advanced alarms now but a solid shed and dog should ward off most burglars.

Re: best ways to keep a bike from being stolen?

Pretty much everything has been said. Just make it harder than the next guy's bike. If yours is the hardest they'll leave it alone. The shed with a dog is probably the best all around but at some point you have to go places away from your house. Then paging alarms and full coverage insurance is the best option.

I know the original poster said he couldn't afford full coverage. That's what I originally thought. The first quotes I got for full coverage from Geico and Progressive were both over $1400 a year when liability was only $400. Then I went to State Farm and have full coverage for only $153 a year. It gives me the best piece of mind.

If it has wheels, I've crashed it, and some things that don't razor scooter, skate board, roller skates, roller blades, skis, snowmobile, card board box on stairs, giant inner tube, nissan sentra, dirtbike, lawn tractor (wheelied it over), grandmas bread tray on stairs, kayak, canoe, rubber raft, bicycle, wake board, kneeboard, waterskis, tobaggan (plowed a pine tree), horses, ATV's

State farm has the best rates by far but that's for another thread.

Re: best ways to keep a bike from being stolen?

When I didn't have a house w/ a garage i would pull my bike up as close to the house as possible and pull my truck up so there was no room to move the bike. At hotels i'd just pull the bike into the room. ( Management hates that BTW) If you want to get fancy, just rig up another spark plug into your seat w/ a relay switch, so if your bike is boosted atleast the thief's jewels will get fried.

Loopys bikes are parked in front of mine, they need moving before mine can be moved, they are then alarmed and immobilized... get passed that and they get deafened by exhausts loud enough to wake the dead (Who said loud exhausts serve no practical purpose!?)..

.. And if all else fails...
