Other characteristics that make a bike hard to steal:
* old, cheap-looking, relatively ugly
* given the above, an old road bike is less desirable than a cheap mountain bike
* ridiculously large - I'm 6'5", and friends who are 6'3" can't even ride my bike comfortably. Which is good, given that I've got new fenders and moustache bar and shiny 7-speed freewheel that make the bike look less cheap.

So, the two characteristics I mention are less desirable and so large that most people can't ride it. Do y'all have others?
