Crime Prevention Advice –
1.   Lock the cycle to a fixed object to prevent it being carried off. Make sure the object can't    be broken i.e. plastic drain pipe.
2.   Use quality locks, graded on their security. Pay at least 10% of the value of the cycle for the lock with a £30 minimum.
3.   Remove expensive fixtures from the bike if you are to leave it unattended & swap quick release fittings for standard ones. 
4.   Lock the bikes parts to the frame using wire loops and security cables. These would include wheels and forks.
5.   If leaving your bike unattended choose busy well populated cycle racks, where there are many passing potential witnesses.
Key Activities –
If you don’t need quick release accessories on your cycle change to standard Allen key fittings, to protect parts from theft.
Buying a secondhand cycle? Check the seller’s story sounds plausible & they have the original buyers pack or receipts. Check the cycle isn't registered stolen for a small fee on Checkmend
