I know this topic has been done to death but I am just so frustrated with it all. This is the biggest obstacle for my car free lifestyle. The fact that I cannot go and just park my bike like many.
How can motorbikes do it?
Right now I use the Kryptonite U-lock.
I have a $1600 good bike I ride everywhere but if I need to go somewhere risky I use my single gear old school warrior eg. the beach.
This is so annoying as I have this awesome bike but cannot use it due to the fear of theft.
