Philadelphia: Top city for bicycle theft

The city of brotherly love is now the city of bike theft in Kryptonite Lock’s latest ranking of top American bicycle theft cities, beating out New York City for the first time ever. “Our premier line [of bicycle locks] is the “New York” line because we know, in the US, that’s the bike theft capital,” says Kryptonite marketing chieftress Donna Tocci. “But now I’m wondering if we need to change the name of our products,” she jokes.

In the 2007 list released this morning, New York City dropped all the way to third place on the list, while Washington DC dropped off of the top 10 list altogether. Read more at Unbreakable Bonds, the blog of Kryptonite Locks.

    Fritz – thanks for getting the word out. The most important thing about this list is making sure that people learn how to lock properly and do it each and every time.
