Lockdown: 10 Solutions for Securing Your Bike

From the Archives: Cities are graveyards for stolen bikes, with bent wheels and ragged frames hanging off anything nailed to the ground. Remains. The air is thick with the ghosts of bikes that were stolen completely — Fujis, Treks, Surlys. You can almost hear their cute little bells chirping. Estimates for stolen bikes in the U.S. between one and two million per year, and they’re difficult to get back because most people don’t write down serial numbers or register their bikes — and bike theft isn’t exactly law enforcement’s number one priority.
