I need to keep my bike from being stolen. I figure if I think like a thief, I can figure outhow to protect it. So, how would you try to steal my bike?
Well first off, how do you know your crappy bike is even worth stealing? How many pegs you got? Mag wheels? White tires? Worthless baseball card in the spokes?
If not, then you got nothing to worry about. What self-respecting bicycle thief would steal a (shudder) ten-speed? Or a (shudder, shudder) mounTAIN bike? The only thing those bikes gets you is tired. Any bike with a water bottle holder is a complete waste of bike.
Steve McQueen in his Dune Buggy from The Thomas Crown Affair. I helped them design it, so I’m kind of proud of that. It’s set on a VW chassis with great old wide weenies - big wide tires on it with mag wheels. Corvair engine stuffed in the back,
