Two U-Locks: Good.

Two U-Locks on the front wheel and frame with an unlocked rear wheel with quick release skewer: Not so good.

Considering the locks match is doubt it.

Not a stolen bike. The owner wised-up and now locks it with appropriate technique and hardware.

 

Saw this in Milwaukee this past weekend. At least someone couldn't ride the bike away. 

As I was a block away it occurred to me that I should've picked the bike up and turned it the other direction but better not to touch people's things. 

I would disagree that leaving a wheel with quick release unlocked (even with a cable) is appropriate technique.

This "Kevin C" sure seems to know a lot about bike theft. Seems suspicious to me.....

Noticed this a little while back in front of Gene's Delicatessen on Lincoln Square.

Yes, that is a towel being used as a lock

Ha! I thought it was a sweatsock.

I know several people who say "tie up" instead of "lock up" for securing a bike.  I didn't think they meant it literally...

Well, if it was a sweaty sock, that may have deterred clean-freak bike thieves

Maybe it is a self-aware guard towel created by a top-secret military project...

Must have been a pretty stout knot.
