IMVHO, alarms will only keep the honest people honest.

Will it keep your bike from getting stolen? Only from a very casual theif. An expierenced theif will get your bike no matter what you do.

Yeah, I agree with Special Ed. Alarms and any kind of locking device (wheel or cables/chains) are for psuedo safety. I don't know what the recovery rates on Lojack are but with them at least you get a chance to get the bike back.

Most bikes are stolen with a truck or van. A couple guys hop out, lift 400-500lbs and they're gone.

If you chain your bike up, make sure you do so against a solid, immoveable object. That way, they can't just lift and run. Use a wheel lock as well.

Best if you take it with you inside the house.

Default Lo-jack

I just purchased my bike yesterday! Had the option to get lo-jack, decided not to at this time but was a 1 time fee of 750. If the bike ever got stolen i would jsut call the local pd tell him some info he would activate the lo-jack and wa-la door to door service to my bike! Dont think it costs anything for the search. Also you can get from 5 - 30% of comprehensive insurance with it in mass.

FYI,

And for a chain? They have this nice tool called bolt cutters. So in that sence your not really safe.
