The only bike I have had stolen was red.  My last view of it was when I turned to look back and saw it gleaming in the sunshine.  How smart it looks, I thought.  :'(

In 1977 or 8, I had my first decent bike stolen.  A Dawes, that  I'd had converted from 5 to 10 speed at Tommy Godwin's shop in Kings Heath (the other Tommy Godwin).  The bike I did my first 200 on (dressed in trainers and jeans).
My housemates were both amazed and embarrassed as I sobbed that evening.

I still look out for it.

I imagine a lot go missing from trains.  The TOCs forbid you from locking bikes to the rack so it's just asking to be taken at an intermediate station.  Thinking like a thief, provided you ensured you left the train with the stolen bike after everyone else, just before a station attendant came to close the still-open door, you'd be home free.  Wear a hoodie or cap as an anti-CCTV measure.

I think it might be best to use a flimsy cable lock and attach the bike to the rack unless you can actually see the rack from your seat.  It's unlikely anyone will really complain.

Or only get direct trains with no stops  ;D

Full marks to the Spanish copper who spotted this bike:

Vuelta a Espana: Stolen €12,000 bike 'on sale for €120' (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-34238469)

Quote
Police were inspecting the shop for suspected stolen goods when they spotted the bicycle's "exceptional technical characteristics".

A police statement (in Spanish) said the team had not yet had time to lodge a complaint for theft.

We are going to offer a jersey with stripes on to the person scum who stole the Orica Greenedge bike,'' police said on their official Twitter account (in Spanish). "His race ends in jail."

The IEP prototype dangly bike space had a loop for locking bikes to, which could be un-looped using a carriage key if staff needed to remove the locked bike for whatever reason.  Not a bad idea, except that its presence further restricted the bike geometries that could be stowed, and limits the second cyclist's ability to play tetris.  The consensus amongst our group of testers was that we'd rather that cycle reservations automatically gave you a reservation for the seats overlooking the bike spaces.

I generally strap bikes down with a ratchet strap, and apply the rear brake to improve stability, which probably helps deter opportunistic wandering-off by increasing the faff factor.  Obviously the recumbent is unlikely to be opportunistically stolen anyway, but it's the Brompton that I really worry about, and tend to keep it within sight.

Good thinking, except surely most Brompton journeys are made with a single item of commuter luggage, which you'd tend to keep with you...

I only travel between New Street and Cheltenham, which is one stop but since having a chat with one of the guards I stand in the vestibule with the bike spaces in (cross country).

Apparently the common wheeze, is for the thief to just get off before you with your bike at a station you aren't planning on, this easily facilitated by the cycle reservation ticket.

Out of interest, does that include in guard wagons?  I've always been allowed to strap mine in and lock them on.  Or have I jus been lucky with the guards?

Similar story here. I used to commute from Stoke Newington to Soho on my 10-speed Dawes. One day I got rammed into a kerb by a taxi. Bike was okay, but my back was out. Hobbled to work & locked the bike to a handy banister in the lobby of the building where I worked - out of sight from the street (but no receptionist - they were on the 1st floor). Every day for two weeks, while my back was recovering, I'd come into the lobby, nod hello to my bike, and walk up the stairs. One morning I came in, nodded to the bike, started up the stairs, then realised the bike wasn't there.

Company called the cops. They actually turned up quite quickly. Found that the thief had left behind bolt cutters worth more than the bike. I asked the cops if I could keep them. But apparently you're not allowed to hang on to 'evidence'. Never heard another thing about it. Insurance had run out a month before & I'd forgotten to renew.

Especially there, ostensibly because of restricted access in emergencies, or so I'm told by GWR staff I know.

I'm guilty of locking my bike up though in spaces where I don't consider it would be in the way for all the reasons people cite above.  If my bike is out of sight even for 30 seconds I lock it up.  If I'm going to be away from it for any length of time then I lock it with two d-locks and a cable lock.

I probably wouldn't be massively upset if my Ribble got stolen as it's mostly just for commuting but I would be heartbroken if my Specialized got nicked as I've done almost all of the interesting stuff I have done as an adult cyclist on that bike.

Is it a Winter Audax (I had one of those nicked - still miss it)?   If yes, do let me know if you plan to leave it unattended somewhere.  'Nice bike, mister, shame if it got nicked...'  ;)

On trains with separate bike sections like an HST or Pendalino, if there are 2 of us travelling, then I lock both bikes together.  They're not locked to the train, so the train staff can't complain, and it would make it very difficult to get both bikes out together.  Although I always have a look out the window at intermediate stops just to check what's happening.

my fixie
the only sit up and beg fixie I have ever seen
short cranks (155mm)
rack front (alu, nomrod with shelf) and rear (black sjsc 60kg one)
non-matching mudguards with flaps of shampoo bottle (front) and lime green toilet duck (rear)
lightbottle rack on handlebars - was black, fading to bronze and metallic)
bars are north all rounder, chrome
front brake only, empty lever for rear brake
rusty bottom bracket and chain stays
step through frame
home made wheels
double sided pedals, toe strap on left pedal only
nurse's lock

cable lock was cast aside at the end of Khartoum Road, I found it the next morning.

I did all my fixed audaxes on it, and it's my runaround - hence rear rack rating, I used to cart the little dears around on it, when it had bmx pegs on it.

Daughter's bike is a distinctive small blue Mercianhttps://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10155781592601588&id=525286587 (https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10155781592601588&id=525286587)

Will try to get details of the other bike.

Bright red - brown leather brooks saddle.

Has "bikes of Inverness" sticker on down tube.

(And to clarify, I'm married to Mrcharly's daughter - not to Mrcharly!)

Crumbs.  Hopefully they're also stupid enough to try to sell it.

Recently found out that the met cycle theft team (or what ever it was called) was disbanded a white back.  Almost over a year ago.
