May is Bike Month NYC. To get things started, Hal Ruzal and Kerri Martin take a look at how well New Yorkers lock up their rides.

There are several good locking tips in this video. One, however, isn’t that great. They show one bike that uses hose clamps to secure the quick release skewers. The bike in the video had both wheels locked up, so they were secure. Learn from my stupidity, don’t rely on hose clamps alone to keep your wheels out of the hands of bike thieves.
