That's not the easiest way for them to steal the bikes. I once knew a guy - behind bars now - that swiped a few bikes. He told me a few things that helped me know what to look for when people brought me parts to buy. I don't want to post it here, but It's good information.

First off, it's fairly easy for a good thief to break the handlebar lock. Secondly, they use special keys to turn the bike on. No damage to the ignition.

The safest thing for your bike. Lock it up inside if possible. If it's outside, lock up the rims somehow so you can't roll very far, better yet, lock the frame to something that is bolted down to the ground. Thieves are looking for easy pickings...

well i have been looking for parts for my bike, and there are some bike with nothing wrong with them being parted out. how is that shady?if im tellin you to look there then obviously im not shady. im not trying to make friends i really dont care what you think of me. im here cause i love riding my bike, and hate the fact that people who work hard have their taken from them. stealing a bike or a vehicle from a guy is like manrape.

criminals are who they choose to be, its a lifestyle choice that they made to become scum . these people need to be stopped. we have to band together be stealth like ninja and catch these foos. so your either part of the problem or part of the solution. you choose.

Also, what was the point of this post? Yes we know people can come quick and take our bikes.

I say, NAMES OR BAN!
Reminds me of news and crime documenteries that explain on how the criminals could have gotten away with it, and that "law enforcement for lucky" kinda bullshit. While I work for a living, a lot of thieves got a lot of time to sit at home and learn.

A terminal switch is the best protection for the ones that own a "master" key. I had one for my car back in the day, they basicly disconnect/connect the battery power with a remote servo. Wheel lock to this addition would make any thief bark at the moon. Just keep your eyes open for suspecious people, either on the road steakin out your ride, or walking the streets at night.
