    [SIZE=3][/SIZE]We are visiting from California for the first time. Had a greatday riding with Cog Wild yesterday!.....then we stopped for a beer at 10 Barrel Brewing. We parked in themain parking lot and had our bikes locked to the car rack with a heavy cablelook that was locked to the steel loop on the hitch receiver on the car. We thought it would safebecause there were a ton of people and bikes there at 10 Barrel. The theftoccurred sometime between 6:30 and 7:30pm. The heavy cable was cut“professionally” – the thieves must have had some stout bolt / cable cutters. [SIZE=3]We’rehere until Thursday morning July 3rd. Here is a description of each bike.

    That sucks!

    Did you check with 10 Barrel and the other building across the lot, to see if they have cameras on the lot? I'm sure someone must!

    Sorry to hear this. I hate thieves!

    And thanks for posting. I've regularly done the exact same thing with my bikes, i.e. lock up with a couple cables and have a couple beers at random places after a ride. I guess I won't be doing that again.

    Yes, put the fear of god into me. Done a lot of "locking it to the rack with a cable while I get a beer" thing. I always apprecaite when these posts tell us how the bike was locked up. Really hope you get them back!!!!

    Of all the sick bikes that make their way through 10-B's parking lot on a several-times-per-day basis, thieves deployed the heavy artillery bolt cutters to steal those things!? Stupid criminals: A felony is a felony, so at least go for some high end product. Oh, no offense to the victim.

    Sorry this happened to you, thieves suck.

    Cables are pretty much useless. I've seen heavy duty bolt cutters cut U-Locks.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    We did. No cameras on either building. Manager at 10 Barrel was very helpful in contacting police.

    Bummer...live close to there, sorry for your loss.

    Think I'll keep my Honda Element where I keep the bikes inside the car.

    I wish keeping bikes inside a car was a silver bullet against thieves, but sadly plenty of stories floating around of people having their bikes stolen out of their cars, not to mention all the recent trailhead car break ins lately.

    Plus side to storing inside the car is that they are more out of sight. Negative is that it's an easy smash and grab, unless you have a way to lock the bike to something inside the car like the attachment points in the floor for a folding seat.

    Another tip: don't leave your car outside your home. Thief gets inside car, uses the garage door opener and has access to everything in garage including bicycles. I park car inside garage and do lock my bikes inside the garage.

    And to go one step further, no matter where you park don't leave a garage door opener or house keys in your vehicle along with registration, insurance card, or anything else that has your address.

    It sucks when our bikes get taken from us, it's about as bad as having your car towed.

    People, if you are going to spend as much as we do on our MTB's, spend the extra $140'ish and get you bike chipped so that it can be located if unfortunately taken!

    There are currently 4 GPS chips specifically for tracking bikes available on the market. These chips work with your smart phone to alert you to your bike being moved more than 3m.

    I've had bikes stolen in the past, and it's infuriating to no end. I found out about bike GPS tracking not to long ago and bought into it. Now when I lock up my bike, I'm not thinking in the back of my mind about my bike being stolen. Since I can watch its movement in real time over my phones GPS and have the Officials go straight to its location, before I get there!
    Happy Trails!

    Another reason why people need to GPS their expensive bikes.

    Why buy a $3k bike and skimp on a $100 tracking chip?
    Happy Trails!
