    The ultimate bike lock

    Hello, first time poster, long time troll. Just thought I 'd show you guys where I get to park my bike every day. The officer in the tower knows my bike and wont let anyone touch it. I still lock it though because of all the visitors that come in. Its the oldest prison in Nevada. It used to be a hotel/spa until legislators trashed it with a big party in the 1800's.

    You park it in the bottom of a pond? I guess it would be pretty safe there

    You must park in a secure spot.

    Edit: hmm, and now it works. So maybe not so secure.

    LOL, no way dude! The geese that live their are very mean. Everytime an officer walks by they chase or try to bite, depending on the season anyway. I actually park to the left of the tower with the motorcycles. All bikers make jokes about getting a "real bike", and I tell them that "my bike doesnt make me fatter" and that "real men ride bicycles and love Jesus". Its all in fun though.

    Whenever I see one of these bike lock threads I'm always waiting for someone to suggest towing a portable welder to your lockup and just welding the frame to the rack. Sure its a little messy, but doubtful bike thieves would have the tools to deal with it.

    Desertb -- you seem to have solved the lock-up issue, but there seem to be a few posters on here who can park inside secure facilities, so you are not alone. Of course you could be embarassed if there is an escape and the prisoners tries to use your bike for his getaway!!
    God grant me the serenity to accept the hills and winds I cannot change;
    courage to challenge the cagers I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
