The return of the bike thief: spoiler, the lock held, but my hands were cold
Came out last night and... some nibble marks on the lock, and my gloves are gone from the glove compartment. So it was a very thumb-numbing ride in this am @ 2 degrees! But... the lock held, which is the important part. Rot in hell thief.
I stopped carrying the 'massive chain' since it was really obnoxious to use and switched to an Abus 6500. And I found a way to wedge the bike into the corner of the building close enough to the bike rack I can lock it (I can't use those racks, my tires are way to wide).
And to you naysayers on the valve-stem light contraptions... 2 weeks in, they are still working as you can see in the photo!
