Take These Chains…

Worried about leaving your bike on the street?

Here’s a brilliant article by Eric Hansen who started his research by talking to professional bike thieves in New York. A great read, lots of insight and he ends up with some very simple practical advice. Mainly that there are some very good affordable U locks available, cables don’t work at all, any lock can be broken and understanding the thieves is the best starting point to planning your own security.

Thanks to Andrew Richards who told the CycleSheffield members forum about Eric’s article.
