Dynamo Hub Users Beware!

A story out of the Northwest indicates that bike thieves have gotten smarter. Apparently, thieves are becoming aware of the value of front dynamo hubs and have taken to stealing them only.

One rider had locked his bike correctly using a U Lock and a cable through both wheels. Using a small set of bolt cutters, theives cut the spokes out of the front wheel and walked away with the hub, leaving the rest of the bike locked securely to the rack.

Pitlocks are one solution and we carry them here. Otherwise, be sure and lock your bike in a well traveled, visible location.
