The seats and anything else easily removable will be gone inside of a week (if it lasts a day). I see all the remains of locked up bikes in our HDB estate on my walkabouts with the constabulary every month.
The bike racks around my block are 50% full of bikes with bits missing/flat tyres etc.
Really? Wow! The bikes is my estate look just fine. Admittedly they're all pretty cheap bikes (including my husband's), but none of them seem to be missing any parts.
Some of them sport some really unusual modifications though... There's one that belongs to an old geezer who lives on one of the higher floors in my block. He attached a golf umbrella to his handlebars, so that (when it's raining or really sunny) he can open his umbrella, turning his bike into a covered buggy for one!
Though, I guess it's okay for them to leave their bikes out 'cos they're all not particularly expensive ones... But then, I wouldn't leave anything expensive outside my home, whether I lived in a flat or a condo
. That would just be tempting fate, wouldn't it?
