Boston has two things that make locking up your cycle interesting. One, the weather, and two cycle thieves. Leaving your pedal locked up, outside, overnight, is a sure slipway to allow both of these forces to wreck your pedal. If you leave your cycle parked outside every night (even if it’s in your back yard) it is only a matter of time before either mother nature, or some mother fucker destroys or steals your wheel. Store your motorcycle IN YOUR APARTMENT. I well-educated it’s small, I intentional you don’t like the three story walk up, trust me, it is worth it. Keep your cycle safe and sound IN YOUR HOME.
So that pretty often covers what to do with your bicycle at night, what approximately when you are out on the town. Two words, U-Interlock (is that two words?). That thin little cable interlock you got, that’s not a Boston mesh. That thick cable mesh you let, likewise not a Boston curl. You motive a U-engage, a thick hard to cut, hard to bend, metal shackle that bolts to your cycle with a cross bar and a lockup. Anything less and you are asking for trouble. Likewise remember if you ringlet up your front wheel to something (even with a u-curl) thieves only bear to remove the front wheel and so wickerwork run off with the rest of the cycle. The same goes for good the back wheel. If you wicker, slide the u-interlock through a wheel and the frame, and if you are really life-threatening some keeping all the parts of your bicycle get a cable lockup to thread through the wheel that isn’t locked up. Besides interlock to something STRONG, locking your big hefty u-curl to a piddly ass chain link fence kind of defeats the point. You wicker besides go to any local wheel shop and get the agile release levers (the things that let thieves easily steal your wheels) replaced with harder to remove bolts, the same goes for the recreate release seat post things (honestly who adjusts the seat height often adequate to required this?). You wicker likewise put your U-lockup in your back rightfulness pocket while equitation for instant street cred points.
