looking for a trackbike!!








Question Lockgin your bike to a truck?

I am moving into an apartment in a few weeks that will not have a garage . I am not able t get my bike inside my apartment either because of the way the stairs are setup. SO, I have been looking for cement anchors so that it would be more difficult for some lowlife to lift my bike. Then it hit me, I have a 4000lb anchor already, my truck. I was thinking about using a cable around the frame rail in the back near the bed for a anchor point.

What do you think?

Find a nearby storage unit and don't ride it around the lot to attract attention.

Either move, get a garage, make a ramp and store it in your living room, or be prepared to walk out one day and have your bike stolen. I wish people would just learn apartment complexes are THE WORST places to park a bike.
