"I paid $1100 new including the pedals. Make me a reasonable offer (and by reasonable, I mean $800~ish) and its yours, I'll even deliver it within the city."

The Shimano Sora drive train is still shiny as the day it came home.It has Shimano SPD SL pedals a lightweight water bottle cage, a small air pump and RAM Ball mount for a mobile phone holder, otherwise its bone stock. Its got the two-year Kozy club thing, too. All…See More

"LIKE! I think I'm going to order some clear zip ties and give that a go. They have only taken or vandalized the portions of the lights that could be manipulated by human hands. "

"Try clear tape to secure your light. You can use a razor to open when the batteries need to be replace. White zip ties will also work. In either case a tool is needed to disassemble your light. This may be enough to keep the vandal from conveniently…"

"If you park your bike outside for extended periods of time you have to take your lights off, period. Or, alternately, don't leave your bike out for extended periods of time."

David Altenburg replied to Brad Bauer's discussion Some jerk keeps vandalizing my lights
"FWIW, ever since I switched to dynamo lights, (5 months ago), I've had no issues w/ tampering or theft. (I'd previously lost several rear lights when I'd forgotten to remove them). I'm also curious about tamper-resistant lights…"
