The best defense against bike theft is a U-shaped style lock!

During the month of October, 8 bicycle thefts were reported to the Department of Public Safety.  Most of the bicycles stolen on campus were secured with either a chain or cable lock, which can be easily cut within minutes.

We recommend the use of a Kryptonite U-shaped lock to best protect your bicycle from theft.  These locks are not easily cut with bolt-cutters, a tool often used to facilitate bike theft. 

The U-shaped style bicycle locks are sold in most sporting and bicycle stores.  The Brown Bookstore also sells the Kryptonite Evolution bike lock product for a retail value of $61.99.  However, with 15 Bear Tips Coins you can earn %50 of this product!
