Kryptonite's Top 10 Bike Theft Cities

Published May 27, 2008

CANTON, MA (BRAIN)—Kryptonite has once again released its Top 10 Worst Cities for Bike Theft.

Without further ado for 2007:

1. Philadelphia, PA
2. Chicago, IL
3. New York City, NY
4. San Francisco, CA
5. Tucson, AZ (tie)
Portland, OR (tie)
7. Denver, CO
8. New Haven, CT
9. Cambridge, MA
10. Austin, TX

Kryptonite's marketing manager Donna Tocci said she was shocked by the data.

"When we did the compilation, there wasn’t even a city close to Philly," Tocci said. "Not even close."

Kryptonite compiles its list from its regional managers, hundreds of shop visits, input from colleges and universities, customer service interactions and data from police in various cities.
