You can get locking ones which you need a tool to remove.

But tbh the thieves will probably just think 'He's a tight **** isn't he, lets slash his tyres'

Re: Some c*ck keeps nicking my dustcaps!!!

The kids round here are the same, i work at a newsagents and all the delivery kids have very familiar looking dustcaps on their bikes.

So I got some richbrook ones from halfords, the come with a removal tool and just spin round if you try to undo them by hand, the case they came in was cracked so they were only seven quid. 6 months later and they are still on.

I think locking ones will be the way forward for you. But i imagine they'd be fiddly when it comes to pumping the tyres up at the garage?

And as for the kids on bikes, if you get the chance, lube their brake blocks a bit and then watch as they play in the busy traffic .

Cover the dust caps in CV grease. That'll teach them.

HAHAHA!! Thats gotta be one of the most harsh but yet funniest things i have heard in a long time!! Good idea haha! =P

Well if i see any of the little brats again on there bikes, i'm gonna be checking for my dustcaps, then i will most probably just rob them back... even though i have bought some locking ones now, just rob my old ones back for the sake of it like they did to me...
