How do you make your bike Theft-Resistant?

I just tie it up with a chain and padlock. I've always been of the opinion that if someone wants to steal your shit badly enough, it will happen no matter what.

are you saying a chain and a padlock surpass every other high-tech bike-lock out there?

Most thieves are opportunists. If it takes half a minute longer they'll move on to easier targets. Doesn't really matter what kind of lock/chain you've got.

on a related note:
Who the fuck thought it is a good idea to sell boltcutter unregulated on the free market?!

So every low-life can steal any bike in broad daylight?!

This shit needs to be regulated and there should be tabs kept on the people who buy these tools!

Fuck you. Don't have a bike if you don't want to take the risk of it getting stolen.

you can get axles that need special keys for your wheels, secure your seat to the frame with a bit of gear chain enclosed in some scrap tubing, square link chain is made to resist bolt-cutters, also choosing your parking spots wisely, like somewhere in public view, where you can keep an eye on it or bringing it inside when it's not in use. some people ride with two U-locks for both wheels, though U-locks are often broken with car jacks bending them from the inside until they pop.

If you know how to weld, get some flat bar. About 3/8" thick by 1 inch wide. Bend it into a big ass U. Weld a hinge onto it or bolt it and grind the flats off the bolts so it can't be loosened. Locktite that shit too noob. bend a short L onto the hinge piece so that it overlaps the other side. Then drill a .5" hole through and put a circular lock on that nigga.

Bolt cutters can't cut 1" flat bar. Bolt cutters can't cut round locks. An expensive round lock can't be bump keyed or easily picked. Nobody is going to pop out a portable oxy-acet torch or a battery powered angle grinder to steal your bike. Both are loud and obnoxious as fuck.

>Make your bike look like a total piece of shit too. Stickers, duct tape, rust etc all make your shit look less enticing.

>Purple is lock.
>Red is top bar that hinges.
>Black is the U thing of flat bar.
>Blue is hinge.

That lock would weigh like fucking 15lbs. And I would say the hinge is the weakest part of that and it's where I'd attack it. Upside down can of air duster and a hammer maybe? Depends on how well you weld.
