    Very appropriate, couple of 12T Danforths should do it  :016:

    Alternatively, paint it issue grey with a BIG number on the side  :001:

    I've got to say there's not much can beat a good lock and chain.  I have never been tempted to buy a disc lock because someone could still lift the bike (OK, so they would have to be strong - I get that) and the disc (not the lock) can be cut with a grinder/cutter in fairly short order.

    I do like the Bennett's anti theft devices YouTube videos and also FortNine.  I fitted the factory alarm retrospectively (with helpful advice from Coconut) and I bought an Oxford Big Boss alarmed padlock and a muckle big chain recommended by Bennetts. I generally always put the steering lock on because I prefer the bike to be on the centre stand anyway.  The Oxofrd Big Boss alarm isn't as loud as I expected, but it is strong and the same price you would pay for a decent padlock anyway so it didn't really matter about volume, but it is loud enough to attract attention.

    I considered a tracker as well, but haven't reached a decision on that yet.

    If you go for a tracker I can recommend the monimoto 7, its small and easy to hide as it matches the black plastic used in our bikes once fitted and activated it can be forgotten about, however it reminds you of its presence every day around the same time, by a message say it's ready for action. The GPS is quite accurate, once setup with a good fix it was within 5 metres of where the bike was.

    Thanks for sharing this thread and a timely reminder that some lowlifes exist.

    I have an Apple AirTag in my electric bike so I was thinking anyone has an AirTag on their bike, could this be a cheap tracker answer?
    Love, light, and kindness,

    The wonderful thing about the Monimoto tracker is that it sends an alawm to your phone when the bike is "disturbed" therefore you are proactive at stopping your bike from getting to far away from where you left it, and hopefully catch the scroats at the same time, possibly break a couple of arms and leg (yes I know, :431:, but believe me if i catch anyone try to pinch my bike again that exactly what i will do)

    My Secure Auto Track Bike Tracker auto arms 30 seconds after the Ignition is switched off.

    It has a Vibration Sensor with remotely adjustable sensitivity,
    and will send a Text message to my Mobile Phone if activated.

    It will also Text me if the Main Battery is disconnected,
    or if the Main Battery drains below a certain voltage.

    The device can be remotely disabled if needed - useful when carrying out
    Maintenance, cleaning, leaving at the Dealership for servicing etc.

    With every text message there is a Link to Google Maps showing the Bike's location.

    They currently cost 127 ( Supply only ) and worth every penny !
