Well, in order to keep your bike from getting stolen in NYC, you need to make sure that (1) it's locked, and (2) it moves and is maintained. This bike makes it to about day 200 (sometime in mid July) before it really gets taken apart. Once it starts to be vandalized, thieves know it is an abandoned bike and dismantle it further. There was a Raleigh around the corner from my apartment that I watched suffer a similar fate over the course of a month. Only the frame and crank are there now.

It's pronounced, "Co-burn."
