JaxPaboo, AKA Pat Booth of Odessa, FL, wrote an Instructable showing how to hide a bike key inside the fork of the bike, using a wine cork. (I wonder if painting the cork to match the frame would be a good idea?)

    Actually ‘not telling everyone where you hid your key’ would be a better idea.

      I was thinking the same thing!

    And now every dirt-bag out there in Intertube Land will know where to look for your spare key…

    I always thought it would be a cool idea to hide a spare key in the seat-post, suspended from the seat itself, so if you lost or forgot your key, you just have to take off the seat to get the extra key.
