I was reading the bike-theft thread, and it made me think- Are super-chains, or Uber-Tough metals really worth it in terms of security? My MTB (stolen 3 years ago, now
) was inside a locked garage, and held down with a U-Lock and a chain, and it still wasnt enough.
Could it be that some thieves just cant be beaten, if given enough time? In which case, wheres the value in a hard lock over a less tough one? Would money not be better spent on insurance, data tags, and chain/Ulock thats only tough enough to be a swine to remove?
