I had to leave my commuter bike locked but unattended at the 59th Street Light Rail Station on Tuesday during working hours. I did remember to remove my front wheel and lock it together with my back wheel, and I remembered to remove my headlamp and computer (odometer, speedometer, etc). However, when I returned to my trusty steed at 5:00 or so, pretty much everything that was not locked down was gone.
- mount for the head lamp
- rear lamp
- spare inner tube
Items conspicuously not stolen:
- mount for the rear lamp (required a screwdriver to remove)
- mount for the computer (probably also requires a tool to remove)
- tire levers and Allen wrenches that were stored with the tube
I suppose this was a crime of necessity as my tires were also not slashed. Lesson learned, Sacramento. No place is safe. Especially not without your headlamp.
