Don’t Keep Bikes In Your Condo Garage!

By November 12, 2011


For those of you with high end bikes, or even low end bikes with sentimental value, don’t keep your bikes in your condo garage. For most high end bike owners, you know this already and don’t, but sometimes a reminder is in order!

My condo garage, secured with gates and secure stair & elevator entry, with video cameras and bike racks, was broken into this summer and I had two very nice bikes stolen. I was broken hearted that the our video cameras didn’t capture the theft or the removal of the bikes and they’ve never turned on Craigslist.

Capitol Hill Seattle also features a lot of posts from stolen bike owners, Man says $10k in bikes stolen from Capitol Hill condo.

Our bike tips:

  • Be sure to write down your serial numbers
  • Keep receipts for your bike purchase and upgrades
  • Never lock your bike in a shared space
  • Never trust bike locks (watch this documentary)
  • If stolen, Stolen Bicycle Registry is your friend and put the appeal out on your local ‘hood blog.
