    My Alunminium "Gaint" mountain bike costed me more tham S$2K too was stolen too sometime ago. I made a police report and they just made the record. When I went back to the police station asking how was the status, the answer was ask me to wait. I believed nothing was done. I have to let go and move on.

    Hmmm......even rich singaporean is charged with kidnapping. I think your comment is politically unsound.

    Hey guys.... Can you please tell me how much these foreign construction workers earn a month? Does it makes sense to you that with a few hundred dollars salary they can afford a SGD2k - SGD3k bike?

    Also, please keep in mind that these people have access to contractor-grade wire cutters. Your puny little Kryptonite locks are not going to deter them.

    Yah sure! Thanks to my 10 years living in the United States. I have seen enough to prove my point.

    You probably not aware that Vietnamnese are the best bicycle thieves in the United States. I had 2 higher-end mountain bikes stolen by them and I knew who the culprits were, but I had no evidence to proof them guilty. They can break any, and I do mean any, bicycle locks within seconds. Just like the movie 'Gone in 60 seconds', but it is stealing bikes instead of cars.

    Since all these bicycle thieves is always around the corner, it should not be too difficult to trap and nap them. Get a couple of your friends ready with cameras and video camera (hidden). Lock you bicycle at the position where the video camera pointing.

    Then you just walk away to hide at a corner and once the bicycle is in action, all is recorded in the video camera as evidence and you guys can catch him red handed on the spot. The reason is having a few friends to help you cos the culprit may start to run in different directions or become aggressive when confronted.

    that's why i never leave my bike outta sight when i'm cycling alone outside. even if i leave it outside into a shop, i would come out every few secs to check on it. and my bike ain't that cheap either haha.

    My Peugeot FSX got stolen from my flat. I parked it outside along the corridoor. My bad.

    I did not report it to the police nor went to sungei road.

    I believe there is a syndicate of kids or people scotting for bikes along corridoor searching from floor to floor, preying those easy targets.

    they will then sell them off at sungei road.

    i dont have the effort or time to actually monitor but they are really too much.

    Till date, i still keep my receipt which shows my body's serial no. Can i still make a report? it was 1 year ago.

    If they see your Canon, Sony, Panasonic or RCA video camera, they will still it too. Some of these thieves are armed with handguns.

    Most of the posts talk about post-event action; but nothing much about preventive measures. There has been many a case of theft involving high end bicycles around private estates where gates have no glass shards nor concertina nor barbed wire - the thieves apparently climbed over and grabbed the bikes. It would be classified as housebreaking for the thieves IMHO, but whether there's actually evidence, that remains to be seen.

    If the bike is expensive, please put it INSIDE the home. That's a surer way to prevent theft.

    Well, I've stopped at a shop, spent over an hour, and had my bike still locked. Probably because I was able to look out of the corner of my eye as I had my hair cut...

    We had this Kryptonite lock. Supposed to be tough and strong. It was said that even Superman couldn't break it.

    These locks are only for you to buy a bit of time against those who are going to push and ride the bike instantly. If someone goes around with a cable cutter in tow... you know they're pre-planned and nothing will stop them.

    By the way, a "quickie-mart"? That sounds... suggestive.
