@codewiz What's this thing in the middle of the frame (between the saddle and the chainset)? A lock? If yes, what kind of lock? A cable lock?
@codewiz Thanks! I did not know this type. I have an Abus Bordo (about the same principle). I bought it after someone almost stole my bike (he just cut my cable lock; a type nobody should use excepted in Japan)
@Fabimaru The bike shop sold it to me as lighter than U-locks and safer than steel cables and the lighter chains.
@rune LA's bicycle infra looks far behind the other places where I lived: few bike racks, few bike lanes, few bike shops. Plus, traffic is quite scary around here, with loads of oversized SUVs and muscle cars zooming by with subwoofers so loud to cause ear pain 😰
@codewiz I got 2 bikes stolen in Germany. Really a shame, I would have liked to invest into a good bike - but eventually I then took cheaper variants because of the risk.
