My son saved up for & bought a new Carrera Crixus CX bike over 2 years ago but he has gone off using it for anything other than utility rides. We've been on at him to lock it, and not to leave his stuff (particularly fishing gear) lying around the front garden even though we live in a quiet cul-de-sac as there have been plenty of reports of van drivers prowling around looking for things to lift. Well, last night he rode off to the local pond which is about 50 yards square if that. Leaning his bike against the railings adjacent to the pavement, with his fishing rod & bag on the ground he walked round the pond gazing into the water looking for a good spot to fish. Although there were three or four other people sitting around the pond, when he got back his bike had been nicked. Even had a cable lock around the headset which he'd not bothered to use. His fishing stuff was left. Nobody saw anything.. We went out on bikes & in a car looking at all the local beauty spots in the hope we'd spot the bike but to no avail. I hope it has taught him a lesson. He has a D-lock which lives in his bedroom, perhaps he'll use it in future.
