Since just before Mrs Donkey gave birth to baby number three two months ago I have not commuted. We had to make more room in our small house for all the extra stuff babies use which meant putting a lot of items of low value in the shed for a while until we can get rid of the baby stuff (again). I now can't get my bikes out without a big effort so I haven't been commuting by bike. I've ordered a waterproof cover and will most likely keep my commuter bike in the side passage during the week so I can get back to a daily commute. It's pretty safe where I live but I don't want to take any chances with a £400 bike. Ground anchors cost £50 which I will pay if I have to. Does anyone have any good cheaper alternatives? I was thinking of using raw plugs and thick screws with a loop in the end to run my expensive cable through. The passage isn't much wider then the handlebars and the bike would be next to the locked door to the side passage which wouldn't be able to open without first moving the bike. Someone would have trouble getting a good purchase on the cable to rip the fastenings out due to the bike being in the way. If I run the cable through more than one loop it makes gripping the cable itself and using it to twist the screws out very difficult. I would also use some kind of gluing substance to hold the screws in too. Does anyone use anything like this or have any better ideas?
