Too bad their racks are so easy to steal a bike from unless you slap big old extra lock on there. 

Being Swedish, I'd doubt they have the same theft problems we do. Hence no need for those hefty devices in their designs

you'd be mistaken though...europe has some of the highest bike theft numbers in the world lol. It is not a unique problem to SA.

Sweden avarages 70 000 stolen bikes a year according to the stats. the Netherlands almost 500 000 lol
