See Post #4 in this thread.Looking for some good anti theft for my bike leaving it sitting in a sketchy neighborhood for a long period of time
FengShui knows his stuff and I would stand by his recomendations. Personally, I am putting a Scorpio on mine. You can mix and match Scorpio "modules." I'm putting a ride system on mine along with an alarm. The ride module provides telemetric data to your phone like ride info, bike monitoring, etc. You can get a pure alarm or add an alarm module to the ride. You can get push alerts, RFID, hands free remote. Service costs about $11 a month. For the ride and alarm, it's like $450 and figure 2 hours labor unless you install yourself, which I wouldn't recommend unless you know what you're doing.
I ride as long as I can. Depends on winter really. We've had a couple of brutal ones recently. I can tolerate the cold with a good jacket on and some gloves. As long as there aren't too many sand dunes in Brooklyn, I'm usually good.Thanks ... see your in my city . You plan on storing your bike for the winter or you ride it throughout?
