Locks and locking your bike

I bought another kryptonite evolution lock today, my third with the improved flat key lock.

Good quality U-Locks are cheap insurance.

For the record, virtually all cable locks are easily cut in about 4 seconds. All cheap U-locks are easily defeated by even a half-brained bike thief.

I like using multiple quality locks. Lately I bought some big chain locks. Combined with a good u-lock, I think this is a fairly solid bike locking system. OK, it weight about ten pounds, but it's for at home and in-car use.

Having had two excellent bikes and a unicycle (my beloved Semcycle 24 inch) stolen, I now take more effort to keep the bikes locked well.
