Stolen Bike Alert
Red Cannondale Trail SL 4 hardtail stolen from outside the Consulate General of Argentina in Brickell on Thursday (9/20). The bike was locked with a cable lock which was easily cut by the thief. Serial# wsbc602140620f, please contact Pilo if you have any information.
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 wheels and/or accessories. It's impossible to prevent theft but you can at least make it tougher for thieves.
Protect your bike(s) against theft by using at the very least a 16mm U-Lock.
