I also have a cover over my bike to protect from rain and turning onlookers.
I'm not sure you'll find Manganese steel chain at Home Depot. But I noticed something of concern to me in the description: "•Includes Evolution series 4 Disc Lock with 14mm MAX-Performance steel shackle:" That shackle on the lock, can it stand against a bolt cutter? What kind of steel is the 14mm shackle made of? They don't say. If I can chop the shackle with a bolt cutter (surely they must have thought of this) I will have the bike.
