You want a good reliable bikelock that doesn't have gimmicky garbage and is actually secure This is recommended by one of the best lock oriented youtuber out there the LockPickingLawyer

Not trying to be a dick, but a couple tips to prevent this happening to you in the future and to others:

  1. Don't lock your bike in Hoboken (or any urban area or college campus) with a single $30 bike lock. A lock like that could be used for locking your tire to the frame, but even then I'd be hesitant. The reason is that the only person you are dissuading from stealing your bike with that lock is someone who would take an unlocked bike, but otherwise has no plans to steal a bike. Your bike was probably specifically targeted because of your lock.

  2. Don't lock your bike with all the other bikes right by the PATH station entrance (or anywhere there are a large number of bikes locked up). Locking up your bike for an extended period is not a "safety in numbers" type situation. Lock your bike up a block or 2 away. Somewhere that still has heavy foot traffic but that isn't so crazy (and with so many bikes) that no one will notice someone messing with it.

    Personally, I use two Kryptonite chain locks. In my opinion, a more expensive lock is worth it in comparison to a bike that is worth several hundred dollars. Even if you do opt for a cheap one, I think the brand-recognition even on the ones that are easier to cut might deter thieves from even attempting. I use one for my frame and one tire, and the other to lock the other tire to the frame. When I take my bike down by the PATH station, I lock it up around the corner in front of the TD Bank.

    At any rate, I hope your bike turns up. Make sure you file a report with the police and, as other have mentioned, keep an eye on CL and other P2P sales platforms.

I have this one.

I'm a motorcycle guy so I'm well aware that any of these can be defeated, it's all about time.

I was also thinking some kind of lock with a built-in audible alarm (like a Detex device) could be an effective deterrent. Not sure where you'd get one though...

This is the kind of lock I was referring to. For some reason the "related items" section includes back braces, lifting belts and chainmail lol

As a bonus, this model of lock can also be a deterrent against muggings!

I am OCD when it comes to that. I have my bikes (including my carbon road bike) all attached to the shelf in my garage with a huge kryptonite chain. again, not theft proof but i want to make it as tough as possible for them to steal anything.

moving on, do you or your neighbors? nest or ring cams? maybe something was caught on those if you provide them with a day and ballpark time the bike was stolen...


edit - this is the chain that i use. its like 30 pounds and absolutely overkill but it gives me piece of mind -

u/Ultimaniacx4 · 1 pointr/ebikes

Something like this or this.

All locks are more deterrents than anything. If someone wants your stuff badly enough, they'll try and take it. But just about anything is better than a cable lock that can be cut in no time with a cheap pair of wire cutters.

I bought this kryptonite chain lock (kryptonite evolution series-4 1016 integrated chain bicycle lock bike lock (5.25") because it had a good rating, lifetime warranty, looked good, has a program to sign up for your key where they mail you a new one if lost, and I think covers your bike in the event it actually does get stolen for up to 3k.

The thing is it's pretty massive. It's much thicker and longer than it looks in the picture. I doubt anyone could cut threw this chain without a decent amount of time and heavy power tools. I believe it's intended use is for locking it up overnight. so It's sorta overkill for me because of the weight and the fact I probably won't ever lock it up overnight. it is 5 feet long so I can go threw the rear rim, the frame, and even the rear rack my battery is bolted too.

I might return it and get 2 of the locks that look like big handcuffs.
