How long was the bike locked in this location?:
My bike was locked up outside of the Chicago Board of Trade building on Financial Place just north of Van Buren. There are a lot of bike stands outside of the building and anywhere between 30-50 bikes parked in that area everyday. I locked my bike up with a Kryptonite Chain Lock that was secured around the rear wheel and frame to the bike stand. There were also a pair of bike cuffs that locked the front wheel to the frame. When I returned to where the bike was locked up, I found a piece of the mini u-lock that was used to secure the krytonite chain, so it seems that bolt cutters were likely used to defeat it.
