Since my undergrad days (UCLA ca. 1970, when/where bicycle theft was rabidly rampant), I have always had one or more theft-resistant beater bikes I could lock up without worrying too much, and I have not let my better-looking, more-expensive bikes out of my sight. Over three decades, I have lost two bikes, both junkers, to theft.
