Protecting Against Bike Theft

We just bought some new bikes for the kids. We put a picture of each child inside the handle bar grips before putting them on. If a bike is stolen and later recovered, you have proof it is your child's bike.

It seems to me that the best way to ensure against loss is to ALWAYS lock up your bike to some immovable object with a good cable bike lock. Put the cable through BOTH wheels. When you have it at home, lock it up in a place not easily accessible by strangers.
