Proud new Wolf owner!
« on: July 27, 2020, 10:07:38 PM »
Proud new owner of a 2017 Wolf. Found her on OfferUp for $2200. She only has 200 miles on her!

My girlfriend named her Emmy, for that emerald green look. Sheís even considering buying her own!

Iíd had my heart set on a Wolf for the last year after a friend offered to sell me his white 2016. I held off when covid hit. When I got in touch with him last week he told me his had been stolen! Glad I found another so quickly, but it got me thinking about theft. The bike is so light Iím concerned about it being picked up and taken away in a van (apparently thatís a thing). I live in LA, so itís a real concern. Does anyone have any good anti-theft tips/solutions?

Anyway, Iím planning on making some cosmetic cafe racer mods. This is my 1st bike, so please forgive the super basic questions that will definitely be coming. Iíve been going through a ton of posts and you all seem like a really great group! Glad to be here and excited to share pics of Emmy as she gets dolled up.

Attach it with good chains when at home. Some have gone as far as sinking a secure mount over the step-through in concrete.

Thanks Syd. I think I still have an old Kryptonite from my bicycle days in NYC. Iím an apartment dweller so I canít do an anchor unfortunately. Looks like chains are the name of the game.

Like Syd said, chain or wire cable it to anything that will act as an anchor. Either that or get decent theft insurance. It would suck to lose a bike but it would really suck to lose the monetary value, especially during covid.

At any rate, welcome to the pack!

Looks like a nice clean machine. I definitely looked at my bike as a blank canvas when I got it.

Have fun!
