We have a secure bike enclosure that was opened in seconds. Took another 15 seconds to snap the D lock and they were off with bike. Everyone was scratching head how it was done even after watching CCTV.
I blame YouTube.

Crowbar
Bolt cutter
Car jack
Disc cutter

I think I could do the same when tooled up with a bit of studying. Only thing that slows the theft is multiple locks. Minimum of 3 IMO. 2 used to secure bike to something solid.
Im starting to think what you lock bike to is a weak link.

Goodness me! I'm clearly well behind the times! I don't have much of answer to that.

Thanking my lucky stars once again for living north of the Arctic crime circle.
