I bought this aluminium frame hybrid bike.

The shopkeeper said that bicycles left outside, even if locked, get stolen instantly here in LA 😰

@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.
