yeah id consider doing that too, as there is no way to replace the frame i have now since i cant get another integrated pivotal, and the pivotal bit would make it hard to find the tracker too, shove it down the threaded hole and itll be in there forever

put some super glue on it so it doesn't rattle around Razz (assuming its small)

BTW, NEVER use this kind of lock (this one specificly):

its probably been said, but a cheap, used bike (bmx cheapest) would probably be less costly and easier.

Any type of combination lock is bad news to use by far. Highly recommend staying away from them, and that's with any bike. I would not even lock my clunker up with those cheesy locks.

Lojack? For a bike?

You do not want cheap locks like these to lock up your bike only an idiot would use these locks.

I ride my 900 euro bike (with after market goodies) to school any chance i get. I go to a private school filled with rich kids that don't know the first thing about bikes. To boot they think it's too scary to even ride off a curb on a bike so it's pretty safe there.

Of course people complain because my handle bars take up 3 spaces Pimp

recently went to stainburn forest, a near by trail centre, and someone had posted a message about someone having stolen their intense soccom from their school. i personally would never take an expensive bike to school, it isnt worth the risk of someone trying to nick it!
