Mexico City

Wifey and I are planning a trip to Mexico City this November. We like to bring our folding bikes on our travels when it seems like they can enhance our experience and itís not too inconvenient. So far it seems like Mexico City has some pretty good bike infrastructure and public transit (both better than the average US city). So Iím leaning towards bringing the bikes. My concerns are, naturally, with so much sightseeing, how likely are our bikes to be stolen if theyíre locked up with a decent u-lock for a few hours at a tourist destination/market/restaurant? Also, has anyone else traveled to CDMX and found that having bikes either improved or detracted from the visit? For reference, Iím not a day-long endurance rider who goes for a long ride just for the sake of riding. I ride the bike to get places and see/do things in ways you canít using other modes of transport. I understand bike shares and rentals are probably an option but I hate dealing with those (always thinking about how much the ride is costing as well as when and where to pick up and return).
