open topic, for anything cycling related.
One of the virtues of the Abus ringlock. Thieves may be able to cut the cable/chain, but it's going to be awfully difficut to cut the lock bolt across the rim.
Ultimately a pro thief may just carry the bike off to their van, but most street thieves are going to ride the bike off, and with the ringlock they can't. I'm quite happy to leave my loaded touring bike locked with this, even in larger towns, as most theft attempts will be a ride-off, and once they start to try and wheel it, the bike won't move. Many people will be totally thrown by this. Even if a thief works out it can be carried, 30kgs of luggage plus 17kg of bike is a bit much for most.
Riding bikes in traffic - what seems dangerous is usually safe; what seems safe is often more dangerous.
That's a nice looking bit of gear. Now it's just nick able extras like lights that are a problem.
