    Welcome Gary, you had two bikes stolen? That's A bummer. But we're glad you joined us here. I think there are even some threads on motorized bicycle security...........

    I live in tempe az. bicycle here are like cars! super big problem with the staton though.... has a tight spot in chain... its either the freewheel or the drivewheel. dave staton told me to ride through it... should either work out or break down.. lol like if it aint broke dont fix it. Although this is extremley annoying at 28 mph. im used to my 34 mpg gebe that was super smooth...

    Last year at this time, the most common stolen item reported by The Tucson Police Department was Motorized Bicycles. We had more stolen MABs then automobiles. Haven't checked the reports in while so dont know if MABs are still on the top of the list.
