    I use a U-Lock through the frame and rear wheel with 2 of the steel cables attached to it (1 through the trailer hitch hole and another through the rack). It's enough to deter any casual thieves, but if someone really wants your bike they'll get it. I never leave it unattended for long.
    Gotta get up to get down.

    I use a long 1" thick cable lock that I have from my motorcycle. I also sometimes pack the bike inside the car if I can't keep an eye on the bike.

    I have a square profile case hardened chain. My bike won't cooperate with a u-lock arrangement and a hardened chain is a little slower to cut than cable. I've also packed the bike (and rack) inside car if I thought it was necessary. Haven't had any trouble.
