So here I am, a few months into my bike addiction. Right now, I have 3 3-speeds (including a Raleigh Sports I bought today for $100 with a really nice B72 on it!) and a road bike on the way.
My Superbe is by far my fave ride and I plan on changing a few things - adding a Brooks (poached from the $100 bike), cork grips and cream Delta Cruisers at some point. BUT I feel immense fear whenever I lock it up, even if it's outside the grocery store. I love this bike . I know that Superbes aren't that hard to come by, but mine is in awesome shape - the kind of shape that would be hard to find again. But it seems silly to keep it locked away as a museum piece - it should be ridden. Am I stupidly paranoid? I don't think bike thefts are that rampant here and surely most theives wouldn't target my bike...would they?
So. Do you lock up your favorite bike?
Oh, and here's the bike:
