I think they have a bait bike program in the LML but not here yet?

Being the techie type I've been watching the tracking devices that have come out ... unfortunately the cheap ones are just that ... cheap ... there are a couple that seem to be reliable but they'll be close to $200 ... and the best solution is spending the money on the right lock to step the theft in the first place ...

The only time my bikes have been stolen is when I've been an idiot and left my garage door open all day ... having a good lock, knowing the best strategies, that's what keeps a bike safe 90% of the time ...

Locks are for honest people I agree, making a effort will send the thief to the next location. Funny how these people who are homeless, seem to all carry bike wheels and tires. It must by like bit coins in their worlds.

There was a dood walking down the street, half carrying, half rolling his bike, front wheel
missing.

Nicely dressed, helmet hanging off his satchel.

Two blocks up, another dood with his cart full of 'stuff' smack dab on the very top, a bicycle
wheel and tire.

Hmmm...coincidence ?

No, I was in a loaded semi, with 10 minutes to go till the gate closed for the day.
I truly wished I could have.

High End Bikes found in junkies drug and theft haven.

Did you lose a high end bike to someone whose only job it is all day is to go out and steal?

Contact the RMCP immediately please.

And why not?

Maybe a bike bait program would have lead the police to this house on Martin Avenue a long time ago?
Instead of having more victims.

They were out in force last night! Mine was stolen out of my shed in my back garden in the Guisachan area last night as well. Not an expensive bike by any means, but I had to walk to work this morning instead of ride.

Sorry yours were stolen jvdlee, they look like really nice bikes :cry:
