  1. It seems like bikes are stolen from Arsenal Yards in every one of these reports. It’s too bad it doesn’t seem safe to bring your bike there. Isn’t there more they could do to secure these bike racks? At least have cameras on them?

  2. How many times have I read here about bikes being stolen while not being secured?
    People, the bad guys are all around, if they see an easy chance to take something they will.
    Protect your bikes!!!!!!!!
    I have an expensive E-bike and leave nothing to chance, I added a motion detector alarm, a hi-tech bluetooth nearly indestructible lock with build in motion detector alarm, and a nearly indestructible folding bike lock. I also have a bike insurance policy by a company that only insures bicycles against damage and theft.
    When I have to leave my bike, both locks go on it and the alarms are set.
    Yes, I paid a lot of $ for the specialized locks and it may be overkill but it gives me a piece of mind knowing that most bike thieves are not going to take a lot of time trying to get my bike, not to mention the attention received when the 2 loud motion detecting alarms sound.
