The thieves know where the expensive bikes are.

That's why I live in a semi ran down apartment complex on the outskirts.

I am surprised they didn't hit some of the tech companies in the area. Most have bicycle parking with some nice bikes parked there.

When I worked at NVIDIA in Santa Clara we had locked bike boxes. You never see the bikes. Sadly, most boxes were reserved for people who almost never actually used them, *sigh*

Up at my new office near Oracle we've been attacked by bike thieves several times. The building management decided the correct response was to move the bike racks out into an exposed rainy area so that the garage could have more automobile parking (fortunately, our company is moving). And no bikes in the building (I've convinced the receptionist that if I fold my bike, it's now luggage -- so I do keep it in my office).
