Default Bicycle lock suggestions

I had my motorized bike stolen outside of walmart last wednesday. I just bought a new cruiser and motor and got it all set up. Now I need some suggestions on some good decent priced locks that will resist bolt cutters and hack saws. Any suggestions? Thx!

high man, i bought this at Amazon and coupled it with a 6ft stranded security cable so i can always lock my bike TO something, even a store shopping cart works as an anchor although fixed objects like telephone poles and such are always best.

Kryptonite Series 4 Disc

...here you can see the lock and the cable that i have woven around the outside of my baskets.



peace, bozo

When I moved into this house a year and a half ago, I knew I was going to have to lock my bike outside, so I went to Lowe's. I asked for 3 feet of the heaviest chain they had. It weighs about 10 lbs. I went to Kmart and got a case hardened padlock (said on the package it resists cutting). The easiest way to get past any lock is to pick it, but if they want to cut my chain they'll need a power tool, which I'll hear when I'm at home because my bike is chained to a traffic sign right outside my front door. Been here a year and a half and no one has successfully messed with my bike yet, even when I accidentally left it unlocked overnight once.

Bull. Welcome to the forum. You would do better to post questions like this in the appropriate sub-forum. You'll get more and better responses and old timers like me will get less annoyed. Try posting in the accessories category HERE:http://motorbicycling.com/forumdisplay.php?f=64 or better yet, do a quick search. ( Darth ) Feel the POWER of the search. That said. Here's the best "lock" I've ever seen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbQu_IVUURA

Sorry to hear that.
Was your bike locked up when it was stolen?

No lock is completely foolprrof. They all have disadvantages. My best advice is choose something that will make life tough for potential thieves, like hardened chain with a good, big round padlock. Master makes one for storage containers that is seriously hard to break or cut.
Cable locks are too easy to cut with a cordless grinder, get a high quality hardened steel chain as big as you feel like carrying and lock BOTH wheels and the frame EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU STOP! (even for "just a second")
But know that no matter what you lock it with, it could disappear anytime you leave it. Best you can do is make it more difficult so they leave yours alone.
