$350?? Arghhh. No on-campus job would ever comp that, so will definitely lock my bike from now on.

Reasons why I bought a lock: 1. I like spending an extra 5 minutes every day trying to remember my combination/finding a key 2. I wanted to spend money 3. I think my bike likes being locked up. In all seriousness, I don't own a bike. If I owned a bike, I would definitely buy a lock. It doesn't make sense to leave $300 lying on the street, does it?

Luckily, I've never had my bike stolen. But, when I was on a mountain biking trip in Colorado, my friend had his stolen. He should have locked it around a tree or something. Didn't think anyone was around. We had to walk many miles back to our car with only one bike; it was awful. Nice message guys.

I wonder if there is any stats on the theft of skateboards? I think because skateboarders can carry their boards in and out of buildings that it must be much lower.

I had my bike stolen once. It was one of the most devastating days of my life. RIP Green Cannondale. For sure getting a lock AND an asset tag for my next bike.

I had my $400 bike locked up when it was stolen..... 2 months later it was recovered! Guess I beat the odds.

My bike, a Wal-Mart Schwinn was stolen by the local meth head fuckin' Mexican. The prick watched me and family leave, then came over and stole my bike. He recently got busted and is locked up, earning his cigarettes by taking it up the pooper. Viva Mexico. BTW, I live in a residential neighborhood, where we never had any trouble until the before mentioned guy moved in.
