Carrying a new bike around on the bus in Seattle... safe?
I just bought a new Trek bike. I plan on taking it to trails and bike paths for some run rides, and I want to use metro buses as the means of transportation. Since I have a monthly pass (as I take the bus to work), taking my bike on the bus will cost me nothing more.
My question is, how safe is it? I have carried my old bike on the metro buses before (mainly short routes) without any problem, and I've personally never seen any bike stolen from the bus rack in the past few years. OTOH, my bike is brand new, and I don't want to take too much of a chance.
What's your take on it?
