Incident Description: 
I locked my bike up to a street sign. I had a cable lock going through the back wheel, frame and sign, and a U-lock going through the frame and front wheel (which also needs a special key to be taken off). They cut my cable and took the whole bike. On the front handlebars I had a bell from my brother's wedding, and I used shoelaces to secure the light attachment. I had just added new SRAM grips to my handlebars.
