I recommend a multi-lock strategy. I use two u-locks and a thick cable: u-lock each wheel to the frame and if possible, each lock to the bike rack. Then run a cable through all of it to get extra redundancy. Best to lock up near lots of other bikes if you can. A thief can defeat the three locks, but it will take longer than a less secure bike, which they'll pick instead of yours for the theft.Quick question, I am looking to bike into the downtown area, maybe somewhere along Charles St near MGA and lock my bike up so I can go do some exploring. Am curious if I should be worried about anyone trying to cut the lock, steel the front wheel, or otherwise vandalize the bike. It's an expensive ride that I would rather not have messed with, so if it's risky I'd love to know. Thanks in advance.
