Another NYC safety/theft concern from newer commuter
Hello, everyone! First post, but i've been reading the forum since i've gotten back into biking about 3 months ago.
Work is taking me to NYC! I'm interested in continuing my biking enthusiasm for primary transportation. We're talking mostly Brooklyn/Queens area.
I currently (and ONLY) have a Cannondale Adventure 2. Retail is about $550. I really like it (minus the easy adjust stem). Here's the question:
-Covering all logos
-Kryptonite NY standard for frame and rear wheel
-Kryptonite Krait 1565 combo u-lock-type cable lock for front wheel
-Saddle completely removed for work, or cheaper Kryptonite combo cable for saddle for errands
Does this stand a chance? Reading the different forums makes one exceptionally paranoid. I WANT to ride THIS bike, in this new stage of my life, and have bought some of the best stuff that can attempt to protect it.
Any up-to-date info on the bike situation, and advice on how i should proceed, is greatly appreciated.
