    Bike stolen while U-locked?

    Has anyone here ever had a bike stolen while it was locked up with a U-lock, either from Kryptnite or any other brand? I'm curious about how confident I should be locking up my good bike in town with one of these.

    Zebano:

    I didn't know about that lock exchange Kryptonite was offering until I clicked on the link you provided. Thank you for that!

    Not the whole bike, but I have had my stem, handle bars, and everything attatched to them removed and stolen from my securely locked up frame. You always have to be careful.
    I gotta Mike my bike.
