    What's the easiest and cheapest way to etch some type of antitheft identification into a bike?

    Alternatively, stick a business card into one of your handlebars.

    I swear by where the sun and the moon now stand, the only card I will ever insert in my spokes will be made of special paper by one Gehmann company and perforated by myself, in the very center....... ...
