Just a friendly remember to lock up EVERYTHING on your bike if you're leaving it out for an extended period! I watched this bike chained up outside my office building go from brand new and shiny to the sad state you see in the picture. The first thing to go was the seat and post. By the time Monday rolled around nearly everything was stripped off. I wouldn't be surprised if the cranks are gone by next week.
Bike thieves are ninjas. You will never seen one live and in action, but see the evidence of their existence by the rusting frame carcasses littering the streets.

The problem is it's impossible to lock up "everything" on your bike. There is always something a thief can take away. The cure is to educate people from youth about morals
Truly the solution to all of the world's problems and consequently impossible That's why I ride a frame that should probably be in the trash when I need to lock up. My wheels are nice, but fortunately useless unless you want a heavy internally geared hub or a disc brake 700c wheel. I trust enterprising thieves/crackheads to realize this before they go at my locks.
