If I had only had one of these, my beloved TREK 850 wouldn’t have been stolen way back in 1998, in San Francisco: Even there, bike thieves don’t carry bolt cutters of appropriate strength (and size), I reckon.
So, put it onto your wish list for Santa, if you have a commuter bike you like.
And if you are strong enough to carry the lock…
If you don’t want to go through the extra pain of carrying such a lock, go for the most lightweight prevention of theft there is: Always find a place to park your bike right next to one that is much more attractive and expensive (and not very well locked, either).
