There are various reasons why some people choose to lock their bikes up outdoors overnight on the sidewalk. Reasons include:
2. Not much room inside apartment
3. Bike is too heavy to comfortably lift up numerous stairs
4. Very narrow stairwells leading into apartment
So the question beckons: If you are going to regularly lock your bike up on the sidewalk overnight, which bike should you buy?
Some qualities that are desirable for an outdoor bike include:
-withstands harsh weather well
-not too expensive
-not appealing to thieves
-creative ways of making components theft deterrent
Feel free to add to the list. I'd like to hear from people who have locked their bikes up outdoors regularly and what advice they would give to someone shopping for an outdoor bike. Thanks.
