I think that I see this at least once a day on average at our college campus. And people wonder how their bikes get stolen?!

I noticed that the word Human was underlined by the saddle. To be human is to err.

but it's probably some idiot who will act surprised when they come back and find nothing but a wheel. the ONLY way to stop or catch a thief is to think like a thief. whoever locked up that bike is NOT thinking like a thief. probably not thinking - period. i think hal would give that an "F".

is it "locked" in the same place, every day? that further begs that someone show up with a wheel and ride it home.

anytime i walk past unattended bikes i practice thinking like a thief... what bikes are worth stealing? what tools (if any!) would i need to take them? using different tools/techniques, how much time/noise/effort would be required to take it? identify the bikes that are easy targets, understand why they're easy targets, and DON'T LET YOUR BIKE BE ONE OF THOSE.
