yeah, i just usually make sure that whenever i go to places with security, i just don’t bring anything. it’s guaranteed that that’s the day you’ll get the flat tire, but there is very little i need to bring into a concert.
I wish they made pannier’s with a lock attached. It wouldn’t be much protection for sure, but just having the formatlity of having to “break in” would make a difference in a lot of places. Of course, the lock would have to keep the pannier on the bike, too.
