    Bike lock

    Hi Guys

    I thought I would ask my question here because you guys might have more familiarity with bike locks.

    I do alot of alone biking and when I have to use the washroom I have to leave my bike outset the washrooms they have setup at certain points along the bike path. But seeing as we are the stolen bike capital of Canada I want to start locking things up when I run in to take a pee.

    What lock would you guys suggest. I dont want anything to cumbersome that will take up alot of space in my hydration pack.

    Any thoughts would be great

    I like Magnum 3039 U-Lock & Cable - Mountain Equipment Co-op. Free Shipping Available

    It's a mini so it's portable and reasonably light, and it's pretty cheap.

    I opt for a Kryptonite Kryptolock Series 2.


    If I ride without my messenger back, like down to the store or to hang with friends, I just wear it like this through my belt:

    The pedals turn, not just the left one, but the right one too.

    What's you bike worth?

    How heavy a lock are you willing to carry?

    In the university town where I usually live/work, I feel relatively safe, and I use an ABUS Granit X-Plus "54."

    In Germany, where I've had a bike stolen in broad daylight from underneath the window of the office where I usually sit, I carry and use an ABUS Granit X-Plus "59" motorcycle lock. I'm not kidding.
