    I like mine! But I would be sad if it were stolen.

    My thought is to look once you move. Ride the current bike until you find a local shop near where you'll live, then figure out which bike / brand...

    My guess is your bike was much more than the $380 range the OP was looking at. An expensive set of wheels will hold up well, but entry level will probably experience some issues with higher weight...

    368977Something like this. Tie a knot in it and keep it in a back pocket of your short or riding shirt...and locks are legal everywhere. I actually like the water bottle idea a bit better though.
