Not the best pic, but yes the cable was around the stem.
Here's hoping that thieves don't gain access to Allen key technology.
Bike is mine; nobody nicked it. I was a bit offended.
Short of really strong threadlocker (or welding it all together) how could these hoops ever be secure?
Could drill out the Hexes?
Or bolts with snap off heads like those at https://www.fastenright.com/brand/shear-snap-off
Thanks, might contact the venue with constructive suggestions
My local Wickes just has them sat on studs in the ground with regular nuts holding them in place. Not even nylocs. And they're finger tight. I'd tell them if I thought it would even mean anything to anyone in the store, but I know it won't and it probably won't even get as far as the management.
Clocked this morning
Well no ones stolen it, have they? :-)
You live in Sweden. When I go to Germany, I'm always surprised that I haven't seen it all before. It's just different in those places.
Ask them to lend you a spanner, hammer and cold chisel. Tighten the nuts to fuck and then use the chisel to mash the bolt threads just above the nuts.
Stood there unharmed for about a week. A few days after I took the picture nothing was left. In Germany btw.
That's a shame, Super Vs are vintage classics.
A cable won't save your wheels.
Not sure what's going on here...

That's a bmxer's trick. Turn the bike upside down and the tea leaves don't realise its a bike n won't nick it.
Seems like it might fit here (source)
I think that man might have his definition of 'van' a little askew.
..actually not entirely sure whether to post this here or rather in the hideous rim decals thread..
Looks like they’ve not paid for the full version so there’s still a watermark.
Yea, thinking about it it might be some sort of theft protection
