    Totally sorry! I'm only a few miles from you. Care to share what happened? Was it just the bikes or a whole home invasion thing? I keep both my bikes in the house as well.

    maybe instead of "investing" in all those bikes you could spend a little more on rent somewhere else. Sucks about your bikes.

    Sorry to "where"?

    I know several people who've had their locked garage "burgled".

    I added a motion detector alarm system, cut the power to the automatic opener when I'm away, dead bolt the roller doors and metal side door, and chain everything up. If my bikes are stolen, it's an inside job.

    Locking the bikes up... what a fine idea!

    The story briefly...
    The bikes are kept in the living room of my small 2 bedroom apartment. My roommate and I were home, just not in the living room. Lights were on, and the screen door was shut but the 'main' wooden door open (it was hot out!!). Someone quietly opened the screen door, came inside and rolled out the bikes. My roommate ended up hearing & catching the guy in the living room, but he fled. There was one bike in the front yard, but he (or they?) got away with five of them.

    Anyhow, I added pictures to my original post. Let me know if you see any around...
    Thanks
    -Greg

    I dont park one of my cars in the garage. But I am so paranoid of having my garage broke into that I wont leave a garage door opener in the car overnight.
    Im just another smart ass.

    Man u can't even leave your door open when u r home anymore. That really sucks. I do not usually ride in the Pasadena area but I will keep an eye out for anything in Simi. Sorry for your loss, that is a heck of alot of bikes to replace. Good Luck!

    Somebody is hitting Pasadena apartment garages. I lost a Voodoo and a Cannondale this week. Word from our apartment manager is that the guy has nabbed 14 bikes in two weeks from different buildings in our neighboorhood, even hitting some places two nights in a row.

    Cashtar....

    I live in south pas, so far haven't heard of anything yet. Did you file a police report? If so, what did they tell you?

    South Pasadena is a safe city I live in an apartment as well but Im hesitant to show off any of my bike when I ride around the neighborhood with my kids I always use my antique GT LTS I figure the thieves wont think its good enough. Come to think of it, if its happenning alot in Pasadena maybe you guys should pull your rack off your cars so they wont know that you have bikes if they are just cruising around the neighborhood to prospect for bike owners.

    It sucks we have to go through extremes just to secure our hobbies.

    I lived in Pasadena in an appartment on the 1st floor, and always left my bikes out on the patio close to a parking lot... Never had any problems (but may habe just been lucky). Now I leave them in my garage (and gate and garage door are closed).

    And if thieves come around my place this is what they'll get.



    We're still out here lookin' for your bikes.
