Ugh. I had two bikes stolen within 6 months. One a fairly expensive hybrid that I'd invested in, and was using for commuting since I'd committed to being car free. The second was a much more inexpensive schwinn from target.
I cried for days over that second theft and haven't gotten another bike since. I can't shake the futility of buying a nice lock. Also, even an inexpensive bike costs quite a chunk of change. Every used bike I've looked at is either poorly maintained or suspiciously nice for where it's being sold. I won't buy a bike that I think might be stolen.
