Dear PoPville – Bike Advice

“Dear PoP,

My bike was stolen on Sunday morning while locked in front of DCUSA. After having several bikes stolen, I am looking to replace it with a bike that is less tempting to thieves, but since I actually ride it all over town, it can’t be a total beater. I wonder if anyone has tips on what kinds of bikes are less likely to be stolen, sort of like how we read every year that Honda Civics (or whatever model) are the most likely car to be stolen?”

Are there bikes that are still “good” that are less attractive to thieves? How much do you think you should spend on a bike that you ride all over town?
