    I am going to start riding my MB to my high school every late start Friday. I have a decent lock, and and going to be putting my bike right in the view of the administrators that stand around the front gate all day. Should I do anything else to the bike other that taking off the lights, computer, etc?

    I doubt anyone would try and steal it in high school. Even if they did, high school's have camera's for every angle of the building. So, unless you're leaving it there overnight, all you need is any lock that you can't smash open with a shoe. I guess don't leave accessories on it. I suppose this all depends on the area your high school is in

    My high school is in an upper middle class neighborhood and it's in the best school district in California. But at every school you have the people who are no good. How can I make sure they don't put **** in my tank or flatten my tires?

    PLEASE DO THIS. Aint no one gonna mess with your bike then :p

    I can see people putting stuff in the tank, the locking cap may be a good idea for that. But otherwise I can only imagine everyone will think the bike is super cool. Other than some of those who's parents buy them brand new cars. At 16-18? Baad juju

    Oh man Mr. That is gonna be cool. (woman notice inventive guys) And it will just be a blast.

    I can't find it but Paul posted a bike alarm. Works by motion. Would suggest some thing like that. I find folks like to touch a MB and even when they don't intend harm, do so.

    Weird thought, especially if you plan on higher education, would show your bike to teachers in related subjects. (Math, science, shop etc) As you have shown initiative and skill, it helps them to know you are worthy of extra thought. Kind and supportive words in their network can do wonders for you and a whole lotta life is all about banking the good will of others. Even if it don't help. It can't hurt. I'm pretty sure it would get mentioned in a letter of recommendation.
