A bike is always an investment for the personal independency. You are always flexible and avoid traffic and waiting periods. The price of mobility and freedom is sadly accompanied by a risk: Bicycle theft is not avoidable in the criminal statistics. Per year, over 300,000 bikes are stolen - The tendency is rising, and the "dark numbers" are much higher. The household insurance is only limited. Usually it only helps, when bikes are taken from closed rooms, such as the basement, apartment, or garage. In addition, the coverage is only nights from 8pm until 6am.
The hotspots for theft are however public places. The bikes are sometimes stolen there, despite the best security measures and expensive locks. Sometimes the robbers are after particular pieces and remove the handlebars or seat. Vandalism and sabotage also belong to the biggest dangers for bikes.
