Security and folding bikes
One of the great benefits of a folding bike is that you never have to leave it out overnight or
for long periods during the day.
But I typically use my bike for errands and still need to lock it up.
Im not sure if the approach to security is any different compared with full sized bikes.
1. Are folding bikes more attractive to thieves?
2. Are thefts of quick release wheels less common due to the less common purchase of folding bikes.
3. My plan is to use a good U-lock to secure the frame and a cable loop through the quick release wheel.
I plan to replace the quick-release seatpost with an allen key bolt.
4. Does registering your bike with public agencies actually help theft recovery?
Please share any additional tips.
