Like they say, all you can do is try to keep the honest ones honest.


I lived in Fresno for five years. Part of it's pure ghetto -- part is really nice. The only things I really miss are Sequoia National Park and Marion's Mexican Food on Shaw Ave.

....can't forget In-n-Out!

Good luck to 'ya!!

Not a lock but a good anti-theft measure is getting the $20 license plate and ID from the CA DMV.
Might also give you a better chance of getting your bike back if stolen.

Wait, I just remembered the farmer's market in downtown Clovis -- great produce!

I just bought me a hardened steel lock and the thickest chain I could find, about 3 feet of it. Granted I don't usually let my bike leave my sight, but its good for when I do. Just drop it in my basket and goooooooooo.

license plates don't stop car thieves and i suspect they won't stop bicycle thieves either so get a plate if you want one but you should also get yourself a solid lock, it's better to be safe than it is to be sorry.

...that's why you see Harley Davidson's, all with license plates, chained to telephone poles.

peace, bozo

Don't go in to the DMV and waste your time. They won't know what you want
and you will only confuse them.

Print out the reg230.pdf form and mail it in with a $20 Postal Money Order.

If you're really worried about it, buy a small, cheap android cell phone, and put it on pay as you go with data (100MB is more than enough). Then turn on Wifi and GPS, and hide it somewhere on the bike. An HTC Wildfire will "snap in" under some bicycle seats. This way if someone steals it, you can track it on Google, including everywhere the guy went. By the time he discovers the cell phone (if hidden well enough), it'll be at his, or his buddy's chop shop, and well too late.

If you dont want to go that route, there's also http://www.integratedtrackers.com/GPSTrack/ . A bit more tedious to use but it's disguised as a part of the bike, so while the cell phone may be discovered the instant a teardown begins, this thing will last a bit longer through it.

EDIT: now that there's an app for your phone with the SpyBike, it's not all that bad anymore, just waiting on that $5.52/month deal and I'll be getting one.
