Help! I ride to work in Philadelphia, and when I get to my job at 15th and Walnut (a pretty nice/shi-shi area of Philly with a lot of banks and higher end stores), I have been locking my bike up at a rack right outside of the front of the office building. Yesterday, when I came out of work at 5pm, I saw that someone had cut my front cable lock, I'm assuming to try and steal my bike. When I tried to bring my bike into the office this morning (there's some empty space in our coffee room I could put it), I was informed by the doorman that I was not allowed to bring my bicycle into the building, no way, no how.
My question is two-fold:
1. Has anyone had this problem with building doormen before? And, if so, is there a way around it? I know that I would feel much more secure if I were able to bring my bike inside, and I don't like having some doorman who doesn't know anything about bikes tell me, 'Well, just get a better lock'.
2. If I can't circumvent the no bikes inside rule, what's the best way to lock up? Right now I have locking skewers on my wheels and seatpost, a cable lock that runs twice through my front wheel and around the frame, locking onto my frame with smaller kryptonite u-lock. I then also have a standard size kryptonite u-lock locking my frame to the rack. What else do I need? What else can I do? My boyfriend is getting me a NY Legend lock but I'm still paranoid. I think I'm understandably paranoid now, and I love my bike so if it gets stolen I'm going to be SO unhappy. I thought that this area was safe, but now, I'm not so sure. Thus I pose my problem to you....HELP!!!
