I had a friend in DC whose Fuji was stolen back in the '70s after he Kryptonited it to a fence by the front wheel. He said the moment he saw the wheel locked to the fence, and no bike, he realized his error and walked right past to the bus stop. He was too embarrassed to even retrieve the lock.
I noticed on the Portland Stolen Bike Boards that a bunch were taken from in front of a 24-Hour Fitness place. Have they considered doing a sting operation? The people stealing these bikes are probably repeat offenders.
