bicycle theft?

if i;m staying in a hostel downtown, is it safe to lock a nice bicycle (i have a trek worth a couple $k) outside? or would it likely be vandalized or stolen??

Have you asked the hostel whether they would have somewhere secure to store it? I don't think anybody can really answer your question as bikes can and are stolen from all types of areas.

Even in the states I wouldn't let an expensive bike like that outside.

I doubt the value of the the bike makes much difference in Cancun. A bike is a bike to someone that is making $10 a day. Having stayed in Hostels all over the world, I can give you one bit of advice. Nothing is safe in a Hostel.
