The U Lock is a Great Deterrent Against Bicycle Thieves

But they can still work around a good lock and take anything that isn’t securely fastened down, such as my seat:

Later, I went to Lowes store to get a bolt and nut that cost almost $2. Unfortunately, I’m not able to tighten the nut yet because I will need 2 tools to do so. That will cost even more money, but I can secure the seat onto the bicycle and the thieves will need to have their own tools to steal my seat.

I don’t like the seat the thief left me, but it is usable. I can’t be in a big rush to blow another $20 on another square seat. I will suffer for my mistake in leaving my bicycle seat vulnerable to thieves. I will also be thankful they didn’t take the whole bicycle. I bet if I used one of those cable locks, it would have been gone by now.
