So.....the answer is to just leave everything you own unlocked and replace whatever is taken?

I suspect most of us don't have a dozen old bicycles to get rid of. And if we did, they wouldn't be the ones we take with us when we travel. But I sure like the attitude.

Kind of like Elvis giving away cars but on a smaller scale.

Have you seen the guy who's invented a $ 20 bike made from cardboard?

No just bicycles you don't really need.
Or, if you don't have a spare to spare.
The attitude is basically, "don't worry - be happy".

OP: sorry about your loss.

Sometimes, it seems like crooks work harder at stealing other people's stuff than they would have to work to make money and buy their own. Our church youth group had a trailer that they used to haul equipment to their project sites. While they were off working, the thieves cut through an extremely heavy tongue lock and stole the trailer. I would have sworn that it would take a torch and a long time to cut through a lock like that but they managed to do it in just a few minutes. If we had it to do again, the right thing would be to remove and hide both wheels. The youth group doesn't have the money to replace the trailer.

I know it sounds bad but it doesn't pay to leave any vehicle unattended in a strange place. I had a tire ice picked at a FL "welcome" station. The gas station close by did a heck of a business in replacement tires by preying on unsuspecting tourists. They were shocked that I simply put the spare on and drove out after I realized what had happened. I'd rather drive without a spare than participate in a scam like that.
