Didn't say I had all the answers. If thieves want the bag or bike bad enough they will figure out a way to get them.

Thanks guys, and thanks for the offer Jeveretts.
I've been looking at some new hard luggage options (ie lockable) and will definitely secure stuff better in future. Looks like the hardest thing to replace is gonna be the tool kit I had, everything I'm seeing is either crap, comes in a huge case or has junk I don't want to carry.
What are guys getting for a good compact kit w/ sockets and a few metric wrenches ?

I'm sure this has been posted before, but it's a pretty enlightening read..

I wanted to buy into that, I really did. Then someone cut the brake and shifter cables on my moutain bike, loosened the stem on the steer tube and stole my handle bar, stem, shifters, bar ends, brake levers and grips. They took it all as an assembly, leaving my frame and fork dangling from the U lock on the fence. University of Montana - Missoula, 1997. This was in broad daylight while I was in class for an hour or so. I got to take a long walk down to the Bicycle Hangar with my bike in two pieces after class. I also got a BMX bike to ride to class after that.

Tool wrap from http://dirt-bike-gear.com/tw.html and fill it with your own assortment. I try to do almost all my maintenance out of the tool wrap to make sure I have what I need in it.
