no, I'm not some ass-hat looking for pointers to go out and steal bikes, I just want to be very informed as to what the enemy is up to. I'm pretty knowledgable about cars, but haven't had a bike for 6-7 years and just want to know what I'm up against. From skateboards under the front wheel, to throwing it in the back of trucks, picking the lock, I just want to know what the common methods are lately. Would/do they take your bike off the street downtown into a truck? Back in the day, you didn't really hear about the loaded up in a truck very often, it was usually the lock was picked or jimmied.
Just looking for what I should be realistically defending against, you know, calculated risk and all that.
