That's a bummer Tom. Maybe time for a U-lock or one of those beast chains.

I use a beefy chain ulock and cable to the seat also locking the rack on the back of the van to run into the store when I care about a bike.
When at the beach I have other things on my mind.

If they can't see it, they won't steal it.

My nabor just had two bikes stolen off the back of his RV in Visalia. He bought new bikes and now this chain. It is WAYYYY beefier than it looks on the internet. Not sure how many thieves carry an arc welder....which is probably whats needed top cut the chain.

A arc welder will weld it together. Prolly thinking about a flame cutter or plasma cutter.
Most POS use these.....You know the kind, like they stole from the work truck down the street :evil:

I've seen much smaller versions that could cut through top-line padlock in under a minute, in seconds, really.
