I know we are all probably aware that bike theft has seen a huge increase over the past few years, something which I've always tried to guard against as much as possible.
I've just been reading in our local paper about what must be a targeted bike theft, where £17,000 of bikes and equipment has been stolen from a private house by some toe rag(s), including a PInarello dogma 60.2. This bad news was topped off by a recent discussion with a copper who said if you think its bad now, wait until the clocks change! Just the kind of reassurance you need!
Fortunately, I've reduced my collection by a fair number but naturally I've kept the best. A couple are in the house, as many as I can get away with
The rest are in a shed which is always locked. Its also covered by a security lamp and we have 2 dogs who go off like a box of fireworks if they hear something at night. We also live at the end of a road so its not easily approached without been seen. Even so, I'm thinking about adding a padlock, a shed alarm and fitting shackles inside the shed and chaining up the bikes.
A pretty sad state of affairs, but from my experience its never harmed to be a bit paranoid.
