After getting home from a weekend bike/jeep excursion I spent some time thinking about a better way to secure my other pride and joy (2017 Niner RKT 9 RDO) to the back of the jeep so I could enjoy a burger or go into a grocery store without worrying too much about getting it ripped off.

While no solution is perfect, strong deterrence is all we can try for. Using a massive Schlage 12mm hardened security chain loopwd thru the rear wheel and frame, I modified a shrouded brinks padlock to just fit thru the shackle eyelet on my LOD bumper.

This pretty much makes it brute force and bolt cutter proof.

A cordless grinder will cut anything but at least here it might take a minute or so.

And you didn't secure the front wheel?

Is the seat up for grabs?
Way ahead of you. I installed custom keyed security bolts in the seatpost, seat, front wheel, fork, drivetrain, and brakes.

I also did the Tazer hack to record live surveilance video from the backup camera to a cloud based service hosted by ADT.
