Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I've been commuting to S for going on 4 years now. I have ridden about 6 different bikes, none of which were stolen while locked. (In the city) Never vandalised, just find a good spot and get a good lock.

if there is a bike rack I wouldnt use it because of other kids throwing there bikes into the thing right next to yours. find a pole or railing nearby so your ride doesnt get dinged and scratched up.

The high school I went to was the worst high school on my side of the state. We were always on the news for people beating up the principle and huge drug busts and bull**** like that. I rode my bike to school every day, I was the only one, and I locked my track bike up with a single U-Lock. I felt okay doing that knowing that everyone in the school was either too stupid to take my bike or the fact that cameras were watching the school entrance and if anyone took it they probably went to school with me and could easily be tracked down on camera. Make sure your school has cameras is what I'm saying and you should be fine.

I also commute to high school and have been for the last two years. My school is like 90% white with a bit of everything else thrown in. No-one has really shown any sort of interest and my bike never gets messed with even though it is always the only one on the rack. However, the student population is comprised mainly of rich sports/intellectual types who don't screw around to much due to insanely busy schedules.

I don't know where you guys went to high school, but unless I went very far out of my way to be an ass nobody messed with my bike back in the day.
