How NOT to Secure Your Ride

It's good to learn about the best way to keep your ride secure. The only time I've had anything stolen from my bike in several years in San Francisco was because I was lazy and didn't lock up my wheels with a cable. I figured that they were crappy wheels and weren't worth much, but he replacement cost for a new set sucked and they never rode as well as the first. Live and learn.

Speaking of which, here are some great locking mistakes that mostly apply to cars. I wonder where these are from because I've never seen anyone do stuff like this in the States ever.

One comedian said: Oh, I know people take the seats off so no one will steal their bike, but I weld mine on. Yeah, so the thief has to be my size or else they can't use the seat. And then people lock there tires, but I just unbolt it and leave it on the frame. When they start riding, the wheel rolls off. I thought it was funny when I heard it xD
