Protecting your ride

After seeing a few posts about stolen bike.
I got to thinking, How do you all protect your bike from theft?
Caliper Locks, Big Fuc% off chain and lock, alarm?

Re: Protecting your ride

Before moving to suburbia, we used to live at a high rise in Downtown, (circa 2001 at Houston House Apartments). My bike was chained to a big pipe in the garage, plus a a lock in the wheel. There were also other bikes in the parking garage, an old BMW but in mint condition (also chained) and a Gixxer Telefonica edition, not sure how that bike was locked. In the garage basement I guy used to have a collection of old Vespa scooters not locked or chained, just sitting there...!!!!

Re: Protecting your ride

Disc locks don't do much to stop someone from simply lifting your bike into a pick up, and the cheaper ones are easily removed.
For years before I had a trailer or even a ramp, we'd lift the racebike into the back of our truck. Took 2 of us maybe 10 seconds.
Your best bet is to keep the bike in sight or in someones view, an alarm, and a way to lock the bike to something immovable.

Not to mention the embarrasing "oops" factor the ONE time you forget to unlock that sukka.
