Hardest bike to steal
 
After buying the building manager at my work a nice bottle of wine, I managed to convince him to let me bring my bike inside and keep it in the basement. Now I get to store my bike in a building that you need a security card/code to get into, in the basement, in a locked maintenance room for which the key is kept in an ultra-secure key box, locked with an ongaurd bulldog mini to a water pipe. Thats a sweet deal.

Why do people always leave out the vital piece of information. Please... what was the wine? Oh, and the year too?

No idea. I'm 21 and not much of a wine drinker, so I relied on the staff at the LCBO (Ontario's liquor store) to pick something nice for me. I think it was a white Australian wine. I dunno.

Ahh, so it's the white wine that works. White wine is good, doesn't need to be aged so much. No math involved. Thanks mooklekloon, that's the secret in need to know. I'll give it a try.

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?

Get a SWB recumbent. If they don't carry it away, you'll find it laying not far from where they crashed for the third time. ;)

Old fixed ... extra points with no brakes, and do not forget to remove pedals. Hard to ride , ugly, and it looks like it is missing parts compared to a geared bike

We enjoyed a very nice white Australian wine with dinner tonight. No doubt, your wine selection was the reason your were afforded this privilege. A lesser wine would have gotten you nothing more than a polite "Thank you". :)

The one you are still riding is the hardest to steal!
