Unfortunately, your property is not safe in a locked garage in Mountain View anymore. Always lock up your bicycles, even when stored in a locked garage. Thieves will often case a neighborhood looking for who stores expensive products (especially bicycles) in their garages, then they will come back at night to break in.

Sadly, my locked bike was stolen from an outdoor bike rack at a condo complex very close to this location less than 48 hours ago.
It was a cheap bike, but it doesn't seem like the thieves really care. They'll grab anything that isn't bolted down, and even if it is chained down, they have bolt cutters to cut through that.
I filed a police report, however I have no hope that my property will be recovered.
Mountain View is not as safe as it was a few years ago.

Mountain View is not as safe as it use to be because this city is wealthy. Money is everywhere and opportunity is around every corner. That being said, M.V. still has its ghetto areas and that is where this type of crime originates.
