Screamers are an interesting idea, but with so many people desensitized to car alarms (seriously, there's rarely a day goes by in my neighbourhood without one going off for 5 minutes at a time because no one seems to notice or care) I wonder if it would even get noticed.

It wouldn't get noticed by anyone other than the bikes owner who has to be within ear shot of it. That's all it's good for really. Mine cost about $5.

True that, for most of the time. At the time I posted I was thinking about my bikes in the garage, and how most of the houses here have thier garage an average of a storey/floor above or below the houses (hilly neighbourhood). If you're just inside the store for a minute it would be more noticable.

Windows down & keys dangling from the ignition is the norm, be it the driveway, work or the corner store...

...except in wallyworld's lot, no one trusts wallyworld lol

Yeah, no doubt. It's looking good so far, looking forward to seeing it when you're 'done'.
