unfortunately, we never got it back
Sorry to hear that, I know the feeling and it sucks.

the bike was in front of our house and behind our fence. there is no lamp post on our terrace to secure it to. we used the bike lock that's installed with the bike. i'm not sure, but i think it's called something like a ring lock. turn the key and a bar slides through the tires...
By bar slide, do you mean a U lock ? They are usually solid. though if you're bike wasn't locked to a solid object, they could always take it like that and remove the lock later.

if you have an electric bike, you should make sure that your insurance covers it. not all insurance carriers do unless you explicitly have it written in that it's electric. i can't find the original k-tipp article i read about this, but this goes in that direction.

hope that helps somewhat!
I suppose you were insured as part of your home insurance, which doesn't cover much. Given the rise in popularity of ebikes, Zurich & Vaudoise are now selling dedicated bike insurance from 99CHF, which I would advise everyone whol ove their bikes to get.

Journalists have done an interesting test, tracking a stolen bicycle over Geneva, Zurich & Bern.
