Stolen Bike Alert
2011 pink Schwinn Racer single-speed stolen from the bike rack at Governemnt Center this morning during the Bike Safety Summit. The bike was upgraded with blue Velocity wheels and a pink KMC chain (not pictured). If you have any information please contact Duffy.
In similar fashion to the majority of bicycles being reported stolen in Miami, this bike was locked with just a cable lock. We cannot stress how worthless cable locks are, if you really want to keep your bike please use a 16mm U-Lock. Only use a cable lock as a bonus, i.e to protect a wheel or accessories. It's impossible to prevent theft but you can at least make it difficult for thieves.
Protect your bike(s) against theft by using at the very least a 16mm U-Lock like the one pictured below.
