Who Is Messing with my Bike?

After class I rode the Cadillac (I think the name fits the glossy black mystery framed bike) to the Black Forest for a few beers with my classmates. I had the bike double locked, and a classmate had his bike U-locked to mine as well. Anyway, when I was unlocking my bike to ride home, the lock face on one of my cable locks had somehow been removed. With the faceplate gone, I could easily view inside the lock mechanism. It occurs to me that this is truly the "weak link"- that this is a flawed lock design. Like the lighting system, I guess a "real lock" will just end up costing more than the frameset.

I hate even having to think about such things.
