a lot of people buy very expensive bikes and then spend a tenner on a bike lock. a good quality chain and padlock will make sure your bike will still be their where you left it.these d type bike locks are rubbish and thieves know how simple it is to take it off using a twenty pence item available at most shops.combination locks a waste of time also as they can be opened in less than a minute that it takes to open using the combination without damaging lock.

I hate bike thief scumbags in Brighton, they will inherit bad mojo! i've had a few pinched and in my younger days was always keen to upgrade, respray, you name it, i even found a guy on my old one called the police and their bike database harddrive went down just great, and i'd bought another one! identicle! did freak the police out when i was quoting the exact weight in grams of every nut n bolt! identifying stickers, USE titanium seatpost :( MOFOS!! So you get your bike how you like it saving up but dont want to get a heavyweight lock, and thats when you loose it, unless you wear the bike or have top notch kryptonite lock forget it!, BUT this weighs a ton! can hardly walk these days need an electric bike these can take the extra weight but heavy to carry.

I agree that this is a shame but does it really warrant being classed as news? I am sure that many people in and around Brighton have things stolen and of far greater cost.
I hope the Argus broadens this to 'Stuff for Sale' - I have a lovely pool table for sale. Its only 2 years old and hardly been used...
