Default Re: Locks and Security... what do you recommend?

Use two locks, because that way your bike is twice as hard to steal as everyone else's.

NO cables, not at all, from any brand, ever. None. Waste of money.

I say U-lock + a chain lock. And use real security chain, not the stuff they cut-to-length for you at the hardware store. (hint-hint)

Get GOOD brands. EXPENSIVE brands. Kryptonite or Abus. Get the top-end models, not the cheap ones. The cheap ones are crap. Kryptonite sells u-locks for $25 now, and they sell u-locks for $75. Guess which one is the GOOD one?

Yea they cost money. So does a new bike, plus the inconvenience of having it happen.
