Stolen Bikes - Tales of Woe

Now about a week after my bike theft, I thought I'd check Craigslist - genius! And I find the tales of woe associated with rampant bike theft in downtown Denver. A few notables:

-A guy had his Pogliaghi stolen from Veloswap by a guy who asked to test-ride it.

-Pedicab rickshaw stolen downtown (!).

-Banal commuter bike stolen from in front of the LoDo Tattered Cover.

There are an awful lot like the last one - crummy/average bike, parked/locked in a high-traffic area, during the day - no problem, right? Wrong.
