    Security for Luna Wolf?

    I would like to use my ebike for general commuting but I can’t even contemplate leaving a build with a Luna Wolf locked up outside for a minute given how pricey and easy to remove these batteries are. Does anyone have a lock solution—I need a 10 minute solution, not an all day solution, generally. But any deterrent would be welcome.

    Do you charge the battery on the bike or take it off? Does that have the magnetic mounting? A couple photos would help.
    I've upgraded the water bottle mounting bolts from 5mm to 6mm by tapping the holes bigger. Worked on my Trek. But then the dirtbags will probably just destroy the battery trying to get it off. No visual deterance.
    One security product I like are the Pinhead locking bolt kits (there are other brands). Wheel skewers, seatpost bolts, headset caps, all unlock with a coded key. Keeps them from easily disabling the bike.

      I don't see the point in locking it since just about every way to lock it would be so easy for a thief to get through in very short order - I just put some voile straps to secure it and keep the mounts and rivnuts from mechanical abuse but I suppose they'd slow down a thief about as much as a lock - I've never seen any lock that would take me more than a minute or so to just cut off

      If I'm worried, I'd just take the battery with me

      OTOH I have yet to hear about batteries being stolen - not that they aren't but I have heard of plenty of bikes getting stolen so it seems to me that ought to be the far greater concern - i.e. why steal a battery instead of the bike and battery?
