Funny post on Uptown Almanac the other day featuring a flyer promoting a bike theft workshop put on by Google, SFPD (they blamed SF Bike Coalition for the silly graphic), and the SF Bike Coalition. The irony of the flyer is that it features a bike graphic showing how to incorrectly lock up your bike to deter thieves. Mostly because it employs the use of a cable to lock both the front and back wheels. Any self respecting bike thief can easily cut through those cables with a cable cutter, so not only would you lose your front wheel, but the second most expensive part of the bike after your frame, the back wheel. We can attest to that, one of our employees' bikes was just liberated of its back tire on 5th and Market, one of the busiest, most tourist traveled locations in SF. What's the best way to lock you bike? Through the wheel and rear triangle of the bike. So says Sheldon Brown, the de facto expert of all things bicycle on the interwebs.
