    Not only is that horrible English, but it's also ... ahem ... interesting.

    Just leave them outside like other bikes. In CPH and Frankfurt this wasn't as issue. Outside bike parking was included with contents insurance.

    Like most in Europe, just lock the bike to a structure close to your workplace and when you lose the nice bike, replace it with a beater.

    A bike is but a tool.

    "die Stadt" you mean?

    I am sorry that my computer is in Danish and pulls up the German page by default (there is a little EN in the corner).

    Throw a hub dynamo and lights/fenders/rack and you'd be right.

    To be fair it is much different than these, which have been out for a few years and available in the UK?

    Oh, are we getting into size-measuring game as I can play if you'd like?

    To be nice, most recently I was quite impressed with the price/performance ratio of TEKTRO hydraulics on a £500 bike.
