Wondering just how prevalent bike theft is in Dallas?

I'm looking at potentially locking up a bike worth <$500 during the lunch hour downtown - probably near people eating/walking around. I know this isn't New York - but do I need to shell out 20% of the cost of the bike to lock it up for an hour?

I've always heard that if a thief really wants your bike (this one is 'vintage' in the fact that it's older than me and looks like it) he/she will take it - but I guess I just wonder, aloud, if there is really a market for it here.

No, I can't take it with me during lunch. Thoughts? Thanks.

I had an el-cheapo 10 speed back in high school that was stolen. Found an illegal riding it about a month later. I'm saying this because any unlocked bike is a target for almost anyone who would steal a bike.
