Move. If they want it bad enough they are going to get it. Lock it up in a garage with a robot sentry machine gun.

About 1,000,000 threads here on this subject. At least one a week. The consensus is that if they cant roll it, drag it, or ride it, they will lift it.

It can be protected (or made so difficult it is passed for easier marks), but it is not cheap and a huge pain in the .

Just take all the plastics off and make the bike look like a piece of . Chances are they will leave it alone.

Cover the bike, buy an anchor($40) and install it wherever you park your bike and attach the anchor to the bike with a chain, keep your bike in gear and keep it in good sight but hard to get to. I live in the ghetto too and I park my bike in from of my car perpendicular go my bike, so it's hard to get to.. Plus the other things I mentioned helps.

ABUS also makes a quality anchor and alarm locks that work well.

lmao he walked into that one.

if you have a car i have seen some in bad apartments lock the front and rear wheel to the car at the front bumper. not sure how well it works but anything helps. also buy bike cover and lock that thing on too if they cant see it it helps. i knew a guy who would hide a razor in between the seat and tank so if someone sat on it they got a nasty suprise. i cant recommend that but its a idea.

Not a bad idea. A storage unit big enough to fit a bike should be pretty cheap.

The only problem with that is you have to drive there to get the bike. That's a a lot of hassle if you ride it often. But if you love it enough, it's an option worth considering.
