  4. I always have a cable lock with me on my bike just because it's light enough that I don't think about it. I only use it for quick trips into the grocery store but even then–and even here in the East side of the lake from Seattle where bike theft is low–I worry.The problem: my other lock is a Kryptonite New York Fahgettaboudit U-Lock that weighs about 5 lbs. It's great protection but I just don't want to haul it around all the time.I suppose I should buy a cheaper, lighter u-lock to use instead of the cable lock.

  6. Is there a consensus on the best method(s) for securing one's bike nowadays? Obviously it depends on the neighborhood and other factors, but in general.

  8. Tommy: I had the NY Chain that weighs something like 20 lbs. It's so unwieldy that I carried it once, and then I gave it away as a prize during NAHBS 2008 in Portland, OR.Thanks for that info, Anon 7:10.End Pavement – send me a note if you write that article and I'll link to it :-)Meli: My wife is going up to the city in the morning for a conference and she's not bringing her bike specifically because theft is a problem there. It'll be BART to Powell St Station and then walk to the Marriot for her.
