How safe is my mountain bike?
Hello everyone! I am a teenage guy who is addicted to Mountain Biking and Riding around the city. I haven't ridden in a few weeks though because I'm paranoid about my bike getting stolen.. :notamused:
I own a Jamis Dakar XC Comp 2011, which was worth around $1700 back in 2012, but probably around 1300-1500 now. I live in the city of Vancouver, which has a pretty high bike theft rate, and is one of the biggest cities in the world. The locks I own are the Kryptonite New York Fahgettaboudit Mini and the Kryptonite 1218 Cable lock. I have a Kryptonite New York Standard u-Lock coming in about a week or so too. It may seem like an overkill of locks, but I've heard stories of many people getting their bikes stolen even with U-Locks that are thicker than 15mm. So.. on a scale of 1-10, how safe is my bike with the first two locks, and also with all 3 locks combined? Does anyone have any locking strategies to help better secure my bike with these 3 locks? Also, do I need to fill in the screwholes on my handle bars/pedals with something so the thief can't unscrew them?
Thanks in advanced to anyone who responds!
P.S. I take my seat with me so I don't need to lock that :)
