Former Bike Thief's Tips on Keeping Your Cycle Safe

New, 1 comment

The Guardian talks to a former crack addict who made a living "nicking" bikes in London--this reformed fellow offers tips to avoid having your wheels stolen. Besides using two chains, beware of bike thief trick #1. "Someone, if they find their tire punctured they should take their bike with them, right at that minute because someone has done it on purpose to come and take it after." The theory is that cyclists will let their bike sit longer if it is damaged, leaving it vulnerable to thieves. [The Guardian]
