Somebody tried to steal my bike!

I found my bike tipped over this morning and there was a big cut made into my bike lock. I am glad I invested in a decent quality lock! Bike theft is a pretty big problem at UBC. The cut made it entirely through the outer plastic layer of the lock and partially through the metal interior. I think I will buy another (even more secure) lock since another theft attempt at the weakened part of the lock might make it all the through. There was never a theft attempt on my old bike during my last four years at UBC. This was probably due to the fact that I bought that bike for $20 (significantly cheaper than my current bike). However, some of the accessories were stolen from my old bike (cyclocomputer and portable bike pump). Some of my friends have had pieces of their bikes stolen (a wheel, a seat, etc) and at least four people I know had their entire bike stolen.
