…and I have to correct it!
Have a great Easter!
wow your bubbly in the video.. did you get into the easter candy early?
The lawyer lips on the front wheel are useful for something after all. Do you carry two U-locks or do you just use the U on the back and a cable on the front?
Downtown Santa Cruz, I always use the bike lockers. Other locations in Santa Cruz and higher risk areas of San Jose I’ll use two u-locks.
I always lock sheldon style and not too infrequently double lock. Most often it is mid-size U-Lock through back wheel, frame and around secure rack with cable around front wheel. Sometimes add either mini-uLock to frame or add a high grade chain/lock combo.
Right on, rear wheel is most expensive single part to replace. Otherwise, it does depend on the bike a bit. My older bikes don’t have lawyer tabs, and have seim-horizontal dropouts so the rear wheel is a bit harder to get out.
And lock your *seat,* too — I chased off a seat thief Monday afternoon in downtown SF, put the seat back on, went to the store, got a little (sort of) Abus lock just for the seat. An hour or so later I look outside to see *another* would-be-pincher examining the lock… (and giving up after a minute)
Or take the quick release off of the rear wheel.
