    Secure Bike Parking

    At my work, they have a locking cage, with racks to lock bikes inside. Across town, they've taken this to the nth degree:

    And yet I think I still see one over on the right side using a U-Lock?

    Here's what I get to use at my job....kinda the opposite extreme.

    That u-lock is to prevent the bike rack from getting stolen. It's locked to the next best thing to an immovable object, a recumbent.

    It is not clear that chaining a bike in a room in the basement is more secure than outside in a well trafficed area.
    2000 Montague CX, I do not recommend it, but still ride it.
    Strida 3, I recommend it for rides < 10mi wo steep hills.
    2006 Rowbike 720 Sport, I recommend it as an exercise bike.
    1996 Birdy, Recommend.
    Wieleder CARiBIKE (folding), decent frame.
