Mine was the second bike stolen in two nights from a secured condo garage. It seems the thief was able to walk right in through a locked door. We had a locksmith look at the door, and there was nothing with it, so I'm guessing he may have had a key. When the first bike was stolen on Friday night the thief didn't even seem to look around. It was almost like he knew exactly where he was going. He grabbed the bike and left. That bike was not locked. My bike was taken the next night. It was locked to a large, heavy metal shelf. The thief appeared to have a metal grinder, and cut right through the u-lock.
